Oak Valley Red Blend 2011
The 2011 Blend comprises 45% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Petit Verdot. An intricate bouquet ranging from fruit-driven mulberries and blackcurrants to wonderful spicy and earthy element. Flavours of dark cherry and black plums, mushrooms and cured meats. This is a medium to full bodied, elegant wine from the cool climate of Elgin. Elgin is the coldest wine region in South AfricaOak Vall
This long and slow ripening period, similar to that of the Right Bank of Bordeaux, allows us to create beautiful Merlot dominated blends with Cabernet Franc in support and a dash of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot adding complexity.
