2015 Malabar The Heart of Spice Route R950/bottle x 750 ml

“The wine has a well-integrated palate, opulent tannin structure and balanced mouth feel, giving it the potential to age another decade. Only 12 barrels were made though, so act quick. Due to the drought in 2016/2017 no Malabar was made. Enjoy!” – Charl du Plessis

Layered and perfumed aromas of violets, plum, charcuterie spice and cocoa captivate the senses. On the palate, there is dense black fruit, spice followed by supple age-worthy tannin and freshness.

Made only in the best vintages, from the best vineyards, our flagship blend is selected from a handful of barrels, no matter the variety. A true Swartland wine. The final blend is returned to barrels to mature and knit together until bottling, where it sits for a further two years or more before release. The ultimate expression of the fruit of the Earth guided by the Hand of Man.

After fermentation,the individual components were transferred to French oak barrels for 12 months. Only the best of these barrels was selected, then blended and returned to seasoned barrels for a further 10 months maturation.
