Tasting Notes:

Stately`s colour is deep black-red with a lighter, garnet red on the rim. The nose entices with ripe blackberries, blackcurrants, dried black olives, ripe mulberries, leather, freshly ground black pepper and star anise. Liquorice, camphor and a distinct earthiness emerges upon the second swirl. This is a dense and opulent wine, showing remarkable silky texture and depth as well as an elegant tannin structure. Spice, black fruit, floral and earthy notes linger on the palate long after the last sip.

The philosophy is that the "wines are grown in the vineyard and then cared for in the winery". Special attention was therefore placed in obtaining the very best and latest known clones and matched to the correct soils and slopes. Environmentally considerate farming practices are employed as far as possible, with the help of non-toxic, natural formulas of pest control, and the employment of natural predators for help in keeping the grapes as healthy as possible.

The fruit for the Stately is sourced from Darling and Stellenbosch.

Each variety was fermented separately, on the skins, for 14 days. Pump overs were done three times per day to extract colour and tannin.

After fermentation; the wines were racked into French oak barrels - a combination of 2nd, 3rd and 4th ll. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrel and the wine was aged for 20 months. A light ning was done before bottling in November 2015.
