Springfield Estate Red Bordeaux Blend Work of Time 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

<P>It was our desire to produce a classic blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes were fermented whole with native yeast and was left for 5 weeks on the skins. A slow 18 months of barrel maturation followed and 18 months of bottle ageing. Rich, classic and complex from age - of vines and wine.</P>

Springfield Estate is a winery located in Robertson Valley in the Western Cape of South Africa that has been in the Bruwer family (descendants of Bruères of the Loire, France) for four generations. The grapes for these handcrafted wines are grown in lime-rich soils with rocky, clay and sandy elements. The nearby Breede River acts as a climate moderator, cooling the vineyards in the heat of summer to balance the fruit. Their motto: “from the grape to the bottle with care and passion.” The estate specializes in Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Bordeaux blends and Pinot Noir.  Read less
