It was our desire to produce a Bordeaux Blend and so we planted the classic varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. These vines were planted on carefully selected sites and took 9 years to reach maturity. The grapes were fermented whole with native yeasts and left for 5 weeks on their skins. The wine was then barrel aged for two years followed by four years of bottle maturation.R169.00

Rietvallei EstÃ©anna 2010 is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. It is a full-bodied, complex wine with excellent fruit and wood integration. Lots of work in the vineyard and minimal interference in the cellar allows this wine to express its terroir to the fullest. Deep, ruby red in colour. Expressive cherry and cassis aromas on the nose with delicate hints of violets. On the palate, the cherry flavours persist with just a hint of vanilla and cedar and a good lift of acidity. The tannins are sumptuous making this is a wellrounded wine which is showing beautifully in its youth but which has the structure and fruit to mature for a good 10+ years.R245.00
