Description

Old Road Wine “The Butcher And Cleaver” Cape Blend 2015

Old Road Wine “The Butcher And Cleaver” Cape Blend 2015 is a big, bold and beautifully expressive wine. The nose opens with ripe berries and a cinnamon spiciness. Full-bodied palate with smooth, rich tannins and a refreshing acidity. Robust flavours of dark red and blackberry fruit with generous cigar box and leather nuances, and a spicy smokiness that lasts beyond the finish.
60% Shiraz, 30% Pinotage and 10% Mourvèdere. The Shiraz comes from Stellenbosch with a few barrels from Paarl, and Pinotage all from Stellenbosch. All of these vineyards have rich granite soils. The Mourvèdere comes from a 16-year-old bush vine vineyard in the Agter Paarl.

In the cellar, this blend is given lavish treatment with 14 months in oak, 50% in new and the rest in 2nd and 3rd fill.
