Diemersdal MM Louw Estate Red 2013
A blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot and 3% Malbec, it was matured for 24 months in 225-litre French oak, 75% new. It’s everything you want a serious Bordeaux-style red to be – precisely made with great fruit definition but classically styled so more about balance and finesse than weight and power.
This classically styled Bordeaux blend was made up through a careful selection process to find those barrels that would complement one another best and give the utmost expression of the Diemersdal vineyards and winery. The nose shows lead-pencil shavings, fresh red berries and blackcurrants. On the palate all components are in balance with a lengthy elegant finish. 2013 vintage: Riedel Trophy Best Bordeaux Style Blend – Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show ‘15
