Vilafonte Series 'C' 2015 75cl 14.5% ABV
Vilafonte is the coming together of 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. An uncompromising determination to produce wines of complexity, structure and longevity which stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the great wines of the world. Nothing less
Vilafonte Series C is a sensuous and refined Cabernet-led blend.
A deep wine with concentrated black cherry and dried blackcurrant fruit, overlaid with dark chocolate, liquorice, molasses, and hints of pencil shavings. The wine is subtle and continues to reward with time in the glass, blossoming with sophisticated violet notes and characters of blonde tobacco and spice. Tannins are firm yet plush, giving structure and velvety depth of flavour.
