Anwilka is a result of the joint venture of three brilliant winemakers: Hubert de BoŁard of Ch‚teau Angélus, Bruno Prats formerly of Cos díEstournel and Lowell Jooste previous owner of Klein Constantia. Aged for 14 months in big French oak barrel (50% new). Aromas of strawberry, raspberry, and cherry with notes of toasted spices, tobacco and hints of cassis. Fresh and vibrant on the palate, this is a medium-bodied and elegant wine with supple tannins and a very seductive finish.
The grapes for this come from two low yielding Stellenbosch vineyards, are hand harvested, fermented with wild yeasts and then raised in large wooden casks. Sustainably made this is a cracking wine for the money and made in a way that is more usual for far more expensive wines. Fresh with full brambly fruits, rustic herby and savoury notes and balanced by fine tannins and natural acidity.
This wine is dark red in colour with aromas of blackberry, cherry, prune and some notes of garrigue and violet. The palate is structured and unctuous. Grenache driven with good tannins with cherry and pepper aromas.
There are aromas of spice, plum, red berries, and violets along with chocolate and subtle cigar-box characters from the oak maturation. The palate has ripe dark berry fruit flavours, along with spice, chocolate, and freshly roasted coffee characters with a long, warming finish.
A blend of 50% Garnacha and 50% Syrah aged in oak- a mixture of large vats and oak barrels. This red wine has rich aromas of forest fruits accompanied by mineral , cherries in liqueur and hints of liquorice. On the palate it is fresh and pleasant. An intense, balanced and flavoursome wine, with all the personality.
Majority Syrah, with the rest Grenache, Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon and a splash of Viognier to round out this exceptional bottle of South African red wine. Lush compote of blueberries, ripe plums, black currants & cherries. Cacao-powdery tannins are abundant, adding texture and complexity seamlessly complementing the vivid dark fruits, alcohol, and acidity.
