A warm welcome to Glen Carlou, situated in the heart of South Africa’s scenic Paarl Valley. The warm, dry summers and cold, wet winters of this area combine with an exciting variety of slopes and the riches of our soils to create unique winegrowing conditions. Glen Carlou was established in 1985 and since 2003 has been successfully owned and run by Hess Family Estates. To harness our farm’s vast winegrowing potential, our vines are meticulously selected in terms of rootstock and clone, while every variety is carefully chosen for its compatibility to the terroir. Yields are kept rigorously low, ensuring that nature’s gifts are distilled in the flavourful grapes that we harvest. And in the cellar our winemaker Arco Laarman and his team join forces with nature to create three distinctive wine ranges. Read less

The wine is a lovely deep, inky purple color in the glass and the nose provides a combination of leather, blackberry, tart cherry, toasted oak and just a hint of baking spice. The taste is quite nice, with some tart cherry and plum up front that transitions to some lovely notes of tobacco and dark chocolate midpalate. The tannins are somewhat young, but they are nicely structured, leading to a long, supple finish that's really very pleasant.

It has a lifted bouquet of raspberry and dark plum aromas that needs to develop more complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet, kirsch-tinged entry. The acidity is very well entwined with the bright redcurrant and strawberry fruit that leads to a bright, vibrant finish.

Tiefes Purpurrot. Reichhaltiges und vielschich-tiges Bouquet nach schwarzen Beeren, Kompott, Kakao und Zedernholz, mit einer dezenten Eichenholz-/Vanillenote. Kraftvoll.
