Gabrielskloof Estate The BlendCan't get enough of this plushness. Treat yourself to a glass of this rich and luxurious Bordeaux-style blend before wandering off to dreamland. Plush and perfumed nose with lifted aromas of blackcurrant, red cherry and dried peach. Sumptuous dark fruits on the palate with hints of anise, black pepper and dark chocolate. Firm, fine tannins give way to a fresh but lingering finish.
The Blend is part of the Gabriëlskloof Estate range of wines. The range offers a selection of boutique style wines that always over-deliver on quality and value. Botrivier's Mediterranean climate results in long growing seasons with moderate to warm temperatures. Conditions leading up to the harvest were hot and dry for the second consecutive year, leading to smaller berries and highly concentrated flavours.
A Bordeaux-style blend composed of 60% Cab Sauv, 15% Cab Franc, 15% Petit Verdot and 10% Malbec. The fruit was hand-picked and whole bunch pressed. Fermentation and ageing took place in barrel and tank, with maturation occurring over 12 months in second- and third-fill barrels.
