Product description

On the southern tip of Africa in the heart of the Cape Winelands lies the Robertson Wine Valley. Situated 100 miles from Cape Town, it is bordered by the lower reaches of the Breede River to the south and the spectacular Langeberg Mountains to the north. Robertson Valley is blessed with a mild climate and a range of soils that have the highest pH of all the wine growing regions in South Africa, thus providing vines with an exceptionally healthy growing medium. Mild days with unlimited sunshine during the growth season are tempered by prevailing sea breezes, which rise up over the mountains and into the vineyards, cooling off the grapes. The vineyards are planted specifically to take advantage of the breezes, as well as the multitude of soil types, ranging from the rich alluvial soils on the banks of the Breede River to the well drained soils in the valley, and shale and sandstone soils rich in lime on the mountain slopes. Combined with the abundant, fresh supply of mountain water feeding the Breede River, the Robertson Wine Valley is renowned for producing excellent wines every year. This wine has a pronounced nose of mulberries, plum hints of marmalade. The wine is matured in French Barrique displaying flavours of blackcurrant, dark chocolate and spice.
