Visio Vintners Alliance
45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Cabernet Franc, 10% Pinotage & 5% Shiraz
An intense bouquet of dark berries and plums with secondary aromas of warm spices and a hint of tobacco. Poised and elegant upfront, the mid-palate opens to a generous flourish of cassis and dark chocolate supported by plush tannins leading to a dry and lingering finish. Enjoy now with rich cuts of red meat or spicy vegan dishes or be rewarded after careful cellaring over the next 10 years.
Method of Production
Most of the fruit for this wine is from our own farm with a few selected parcels from a special property near the ocean in False Bay. After de-stemming the grapes were fermented as whole berries in a combination of stainless-steel tanks and traditional open-top fermenters. After primary fermentation the free run wine was transferred to 300l French oak barrels; 60% new, 40% 2nd and 3rd fill and left to mature for 20 months.
