KWV Cape TawnyOrigin

Western Cape.

About the area

South Africa's vineyards are mostly situated in the Western Cape near the coast. This is the southernmost region of the African continent, and

has a Mediterranean type climate and diverse soils perfectly suited to quality grape production.

Winemaking

Specially selected grapes were harvested, destemmed and inoculated with yeast. The wine was allowed to ferment until the desired sugar level

was reached and then fortified with natural wine spirits to stop the fermentation. The resulting wine was then matured in French oak barrels.

Maturation

8 - 10 years in a combination of 300 litre and 500 litre French oak barrels.

Varietals

Tinta Barocca + Cinsaut + Souzão.

Wine description

Extended wood maturation resulted in a beautiful amber colour with orange zest, dried fruit, caramel and nuttiness on the nose. This full

flavoured wine explodes with fruit, marzipan and toffee on the palate, with a well-balanced sweetness.

Serving suggestion

Serve chilled before a meal or with cheese and chocolates after a meal.

before the alcoholic fermentation takes place. This process takes 30 to 40 days.

Malolactic Fermentation: 100%

Aging : 60% in French oak barrels during 12 months.

TASTING NOTES :

“For a cool vintage with plenty of challenges, the wine reached 15% alcohol, so don’t expect any green aromas or diluted flavors here. The nose is a powerful combination of dark plums, espresso coffee, Belgian chocolate and shy hints of red cherries with a full-bodied palate and abundant, fine-grained tannins, moderate acidity and good length, no doubt lifted by the alcohol. This is a big, ripe blend, slightly international, in need of some bottle aging. 42,000 bottles were produced in 2011. Drink 2015-2021.” (91 pts, Wine Spectator, 04/2014).

Tasting notes:

Vibrant deep purple color. Toffee, chocolate and juice notes of cherries and wild berries. Well-structured on the palate with fine and agreeable tannins. Aerate this wine or allow it to open up for 20 to 30 minutes and you get something else entirely. Approach that first glass with caution and be patient; there is a great, balanced wine here a few minutes after it’s opened.
