Tasting Notes

“This new world styled Merlot/Malbec blend is beautifully layered with bright red fruit, blackcurrant and almond notes on the velvety mouthfeel. Petite Classique rewards you by being immediately accessible with enticing aromas of bright mint berry chocolate. I’d recommend chilling the bottle slightly before serving when days are warm or hot” Johnnie Calitz (winemaker)

Food Pairing:

Wine pairs well with oxtail croquette, venison and ostrich and pasta dishes.

Vinification

Fermentation was undertaken in stainless steel tanks, with regular pump overs during this time. The wine was left on skins for two weeks to boost extraction as malolactic fermentation was also completed in tank. Both components were vinified and aged separately in 2nd and 3rd fill French barriques for 12-14 months on fine lees. The all important barrel selection for final blend was guided by criteria of showcasing vibrant fruit framed by smooth, easy tannins.

Delicious with oxtail stew, venison loin, rack of lamb or hearty pasta dishes.
