Vilafonte Series C 2013
The cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc defines the style of this wine. Firm, powerful and concentrated; rich in fruit at release and blended for longevity. Velvety in nature with primary red fruits.
While alluring in its youth, the Vilafonte Series C 2013 promises a decade or more of cellaring to realise its full potential. Limited production.
- Critic tasting note
- Dense, dark and brooding, this forward wine has a powerful black-fruit core or ample woody spice
- Pleasant mentholated lift to the nose and mouth that help to elevate the wine's inherent richness
- Ample tannins and medium acidity lending structure to the palate
- Flavours of black raspberry, cigar-box spice and charred oak linger long on the finish
Vilafonte is the coming together of a great wine experience from California and South Africa. Mike Ratcliffe (founding trustee of the Cape Wine Auction). Zelma Long (former head winemaker at Robert Mondavi) and Dr Phil Freese (former vice-president of Robert Mondavi).
The vision that brought together the three founding Vilafonte partners, is the culmination of a life-long dream. A determination to produce wines of complexity, structure and longevity which stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the great wines of the world. Nothing less.
