Vilafonté Seriously Old Dirt 2020

Original price was: £30.00.Current price is: £25.00.

We were thrilled to recently meet Mike Ratcliffe and taste through his wines from Vilafonté. One of the co-founders of Vilafonté and a leader in the Cape wine industry, for many years he has been keenly involved in black economic empowerment and land redistribution. Established in 1997, the 42 hectare estate sits at the foot of the Simonsberg Mountains.

This is the second label, that also is meticulously looked after and sourced from the younger wines on the estate. The 2019/20  growing reason proved tricky and then with the arrival of COVID, it was a year of firsts. Thankfully though, despite all the challenges the wines were harvested and processed in barrel prior to the national lock down that came into affect on 26th March 2020.

The wine spends 18 months in older French oak barrels and offers abundant black cherry notes, with layers of spice and vanilla. Medium bodied, verging on full but it has ability to retain freshness. 13.5% vol.
