Kumkani Cradle Hill 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Vinification/oaking details: The fruit is from a single hillside vineyard in the Bottelary area. Full ripe fruit was handpicked in the second week of March 2005 and fermented in stainless steel tanks for 10 days. After fermentation, the wine was aged in 300-litre French oak barrels for 21 months. This wine was selected from the best barrels and lightly filtered at bottling. Tasting note: Dense, dark red colour. Fresh blackcurrant and ripe berry fruit on the nose. The palate is layered with ripe fruit and oak flavours and a soft tannin structure. Storage period: This wine would be great to enjoy now, but could be enjoyed up to 7 years from vintage. Food suggestions: This wine is best suited to roast beef or rack of lamb. It is however also suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

proved to be a damn delicious, serious wine. Hefty tannins, so give it another year or so or bring on the Springbok! Rich and classy http://www.spittoon.biz/in_the_company_of_wine_people.html
