SOUTH AFRICA, Simonsberg/Stellenbosh, Western Cape – Laibach winery15 – Certified Organics
This wine is a blend of 85% Chardonnay, 11% Chenin Blanc and 4% Viognier. A lovely light straw colour. Complex nose, with hints of lemon and some pineapple. A medium bodied palate with a creamy, yet fresh finish. Some toast evident, but in general very well integrated wood (only 15%). A rich, almost savoury wine that will complement most seafood, pasta and creamy risotto dishes. No external yeast, hand harvested.

This wine is a classic blend of the 5 noble Bordeaux varieties (34% merlot, 27% cab. Franc, 27% cab sauv, 11% petit verdot and 6% malbec). Fantastic fresh colour. Clean nose with oodles of fruit evident. Medium bodied palate with hints of crushed blackberries and raspberry. Some mint chocolate aroma and leather also evident. Juicy, almost slippery tannins are well supported with very subtle oak aromas. A great wine for everyday drinking, but with enough complexity and fine dry land tannin to age for 5 – 7 years after the vintage. Enjoy!!
