Rupert and Rothschild Classic Meritage South Africa 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of 50% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, the grapes for this Bordeaux-styled blend were hand picked and fermented in stainless steel tanks, then matured for 17 months in 225 liter and 300 liter French oak barrels. Raspberry and dark fruit aromas mingle with earthy, mineral-like notes on the nose. Ripe but graceful on the palate, it has good weight and structure, and spice-like notes linger on the long finish.

Rupert & Rothschild:
At the foot of the spectacular Simonsberg mountain in the Franschhock Valley lies the historic French Huguenot farm Fredericksburg, established in 1690 and now home to Rupert and Rothschild Vignerons. It was in this valley over 300 years ago that the early French Huguenots first discovered a terroir similar to that of certain winegrowing regions in France. Hence their decision to settle and cultivate vineyards here.
