Swartland Winery 'Limited Release' Carignan 2018
Intense dark ruby red, with notes of rich mocha chocolate, ripe red fruits and spice.
|Winemaker||Christo Koch & Marius Prins|
Swartland Winery's 'Limited Release' Carignan is rich, complex and concentrated; a very rare treat. Grapes for the 'Limited Release' Carignan were harvested from a single bush vine vineyard at optimal ripeness. The Carignan was aged for eight months in oak to add extra complexity and structure. The 2018 vintage saw one of the driest, earliest harvests on record, and the region's crop was smaller than usual, but the smaller and more concentrated berries delivered amazing quality.
Intense dark ruby red, with notes of rich mocha chocolate, ripe red fruits and spice, which flow through on to a vibrant palate, framed by elegant tannins. Complete and complex with a great finish.
