Tasting Notes:

Deep red and black fruit leads this Merlot driven vintage of the Series M. A nose of blackberries, black cherries, raspberry and beef bouillon is followed by balsamic, dried flowers and chocolate with a beautiful perfume undertone. The palate is soft and inviting with good weight and composure. Cellaring this wine will enhance integration and flavour complexity and will reward the collector.

It is more than 20 years since Vilafonte’s Dr. Phil Freese identified the unique vilafontes soils on our expressive parcel of Simonsberg Mountain bench-land, which defines the core and essence of our winegrowing. The 2014 vintage is an honest and accurate expression of a long-standing commitment to honour our distinctive terroir. In the same way that an artist’s brush-stroke is discernible in a masterpiece and a great author captivates with a distinctive turn of phrase, this vintage reflects perfectly more than 20 years of our history.

Harvest started slightly later than average on February 18th, 2014. The weather stayed consistently moderate for the harvest period. Grape bloom and veraison were short, which facilitated evenness in ripending throughout the vineyards. The Merlot blocks in particular were surpassing expectation resulting in the Series M 2014 showing great colour and concentration.

Merlot (39%) gives series M its suppleness and complex red fruit flavours, Malbec (36% provides deep black fruit aromas. Cabernet Sauvignon (25%) grounds the Series M with structure and density.

Series M matured for twenty months in French oak barrels and another year in bottle before release.
