2016 vintage: Riedel Trophy for Best Bordeaux Blend – Old Mutual Wine Trophy Show
The wine matured for eighteen months in French Oak barrels, 25% of which were new. Dark chocolate and cedar aromas appear first on the nose followed by notes of blackberry jam, cherry and cassis. The firm, well-structured palate features robust yet sweet tannins and a broad range of flavours carried along by the richness of its oak and vanilla notes. It is long and smooth now, with an intriguing character that will continue to develop.
Hearty beef dishes such as goulash and stroganoff.
This classical Bordeaux-style red wine is made from all five Bordeaux varaties and was the first wine to be made on the Diemersdal Estate. In striving to make simply the best, fruit from selected sites planted to the terroir most suited to each variety and blended to form a perfect whole, the result being a singular expression of supreme excellence and superb quality. 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 18% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 1% Malbec
Diemersdal wines are the perfect expression of the distinct terroir of the Durbanville Wine Valley, one of the oldest wine regions in the Cape. The diverse soils and slopes provide the optimum conditions for making premium-quality wines with prominent varietal character. The dry land vineyards develop concentrated flavours, uniformly ripened by the cooling sea-breezes from the Atlantic Ocean.
This red wine strong in character can also mature in the cellar for a few years and will keep its intense fruity taste.
