De Grendel Sir David Graaff 1st Baronet of Cape Town 2014

R1,500.00

Deep ruby garnet in colour, the nose is perfumed by layers of cedar wood, white pepper and clove which aptly underscore delectable nuances of black plum, prune and mulberry fruit with afterthoughts of blackcurrant. An enticing entry of elegant dried cranberry on the palate evolves into rich plum flavours supported by nuances of savoury cassis and perfumed, sweet tobacco leaf lingering with a finish that is long and lusciously augmented by firm, rounded tannins.

Description

In honour of the life and legacy of Sir David Pieter De Villiers Graaff, the 1st Baronet of Cape Town, this red wine of exceptional quality was produced in tribute to the exemplary character and remarkable achievements of this great man.

We, at De Grendel, have produced a wine of the highest quality in keeping with the values exemplified by the first baronet. Vines, like man, take time to reach their full potential. Younger vines produce more fruit and are thus more economically viable, but once mature, produce substantially less fruit – at an exceptionally higher quality.

A true legacy wine, produced in limited quantities to last for over 20 years, each individual bottle is numbered and supports the signature of Sir David Pieter De Villiers Graaff, in remembrance of the responsibility bestowed upon his children by his legacy.

 

Selected, handpicked, individually vinified and matured for 16 months in 100% new, tight grain French oak barrels before blending, the wine consists of 58% Shiraz, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot. After blending, it was returned to the same new barrels and nurtured for a further 6 months. At a total of 22 months of maturation, this wine is the ultimate expression of longevity and potential.
