In 1918, the year Nelson Mandela was born, South African wine farmers founded KWV (Ko-operatiewe Wijnbouwers Vereniging van Zuid-Afrika). The aim was to stabilise a young, but promising, industry.
The Mentors range showcases the diversity of soils and climate in South Africa. The grapes used to craft these wines are mentored from each wines conception, through specific site selection, treatment in the vineyards, and special cellar care at the helm.
Seriously special wine from talented young South African winemaker Izele Van Blerk. Only 1300 bottles produced! Full-bodied red with notes of fresh raspberry, cumin and green peppercorn with hints of plum and vanilla. It is fresh and lively with soft integrated tannins; and on the palate, the wine is voluptuous and infinitely well balanced.
18 months in new French oak.
