WINE OF ORIGIN: SIMONSBERG, STELLENBOSCH
Our Family Reserve is a blend of three Bordeaux Cultivars and is a selection of the best barrels from the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The wine is a result of many blending components that make out the final product.
The wines were all made by our normal standard, always meticulously sorted, fermented and handled with extreme care. Barrelled wines are stored at optimal temperature as to assist maturation.
Barrel maturation – 18 months in a selection of 30% new, 50% 2nd, 20% 3rd fill French 300 litre barrels. Malolactic fermentation is completed in barrels. There are chocolate and loads of cherries on the nose. This is complemented by the full tobacco and more dark chocolate on the palette.
The winemaker suggests that the Family Reserve can be enjoyed now but will definitely improve with bottle age (up until 6 years from vintage) and compliments the following foods: Red Meats, roasts, venison, chocolate chilly steak and strawberries.
