Bloemcool Tinto Fino

R450.00

Staying true to its single variety of Tempranillo with a scarlet-coloured hue, the nose strikes with vanilla, wild raspberries and charcuterie. The palate carries all of its weight with grace, handling the new oak with precision and refined opulence. The austere tannins signal that the wine will benefit from a few years further in the bottle to express its great potential.

Wine Info
Description

Grapes are grown on the warm south-east facing slopes of the granite-rich Paarl mountain. Grapes were picked early morning by hand and brought to the cellar were it as destemmed and lightly crushed. The wine was fermented in a small open top fermenter where the grapes could be manually worked for extraction of colour, aroma and tannin. Thereafter it was aged in 225L French and American oak barrels for 15 months. Only the best barrels (6 in total) were selected for this bold wine. The wine was racked from barrel and bottled, it was allowed to age in bottle for 1 year before release. This wine is bold and structured and it will keep for up to a decade.
