Versus Red 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

WINEMAKERS TASTING NOTES A rich, ripe berry fruit nose with hints of cassis, coffee and chocolate on the palate. VITICULTURE NOTES Combinations of trellised- and bush vines were used from all the different regions of Stellenbosch. The weather during the ripening season was sunny and dry while the Atlantic Ocean had a cooling effect. The difference in region, age, soil and harvest date for the grapes produces a fruity yet complex wine. VINIFICATION The grapes are harvested very ripe and fermented cool to retain soft fruit character. Pressed before dryness to retain soft tannins and gently oaked for further complexity.
