Stellenbosch Vineyards Limited Release Grenache 2018

This Grenache is symbolic of the one ultimate
philosophy of our winemaking team: To create an
elegant, ever graceful and rewarding wine.

Stellenbosch Vineyards Limited Release Grenache
2018 Grenache is a red grape cultivar that originated
in northern Spain. Today it is most well known for
being an integral part of the Rhone varietals. It
performs well in warmer climates and as such has
found a home in many new world wine making
countries such as Australia and South Africa. It has a
rich and succulent fruity palate with earthy undertones.

The vineyards

A trellised vineyard planted in 2008 on a Northern
slope.

The winemaking

The grapes were hand harvested, sorted, destemmed
and fermented on the skins. It was aged in 50 %
second and 50 % third fill barrels. Only the best 6
barrels were selected and blended to produce this
exceptional wine. Only 2800 bottled were produced.

Winemaker’s comments

This wine explodes from the glass with candied red
currants and intensity of fruit. This pallet is bright with
crisp tannins and plenty of bright acids. There’s
wonderful inner mouth perfume married to a light,
elegant mouth feel. The long, light finish shows a
lovely streak of cranberry.

Maturation potential:

The wine can be enjoyed now, but will benefit from
bottle aging for three to five years.

Food pairing

Excellent served with hearty traditional South African
dishes as well as Mediterranean style cuisine.

SUITABILITY FOR VEGETARIANS OR VEGANS

Suitable for vegetarians but not for vegans.
