Food Pairings for Laibach Friedrich Laibach South Africa Simonsberg Stellenbosch
Black with red brick rim. Beautiful spicy and cigar box flavours supported by well-balanced oak. Hints of spice and black fruit with a rich, big textured, intense aftertaste. This wine is a combination of attractive fruit, depth and length with restrained power. A truly great wine - a Friedrich. Drink 2 - 8 years after the vintage. The 2001 vintage was characterized by very good growing conditions before the harvest. Cool nights during January and early February, together with dry and moderate conditions produced perfect berries for the harvest, which started early February and finished the first week of March. Grapes were handpicked in the early mornings, crushed, destemmed and pumped to open fermentation tanks. Fermentation lasted 10 - 12 days with regular manual punchdowns and pumpovers. Fermentation was followed by extended maceration before pressing. 1 - 2 day settling followed before filling new French oak barrels for the Malolactic fermentation. The wine aged 18 months in 80 % new French oak barrels before it was bottled with a light filtration during August 2002. This wine is our pride and is only produced in very limited and small quantities. This is the best that we can offer those selected few that will have the opportunity to enjoy this wine. Very strict selection from the best and oldest vineyards together with only the best French oak joins in combination to produce a true classic.
