With many South African wines drunk young, this case showcases the wonderful aging potential that many of the top quality red wines have. These wines are from the premier SA growing regions including Paarl, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. Along with the 6 bottles of wines all with over 5 years bottle age, a free bottle of De Krans Cape Vintage Reserve 2003 Fortified Wine.
The 6 bottle clase includes:
Muratie Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
One of the oldest vineyards in SA located in Stellenbosch, this Shiraz has mellowed with age but still rich with blackberry and hints of spice.
Lanzerac Pionier Pinotage 2013
From the original home of Pinotage, limited release of their homage to the first bottling. Drinking well now but still improving.
Mont Rochelle Syrah 2009
This Estate dates back to 1715 but is now under the stewardship of entrepreneur Richard Branson. Peppery notes overlying a warm red berry palate.
