PRODUCER: Six generations of Louws have practiced their art with skill and passion at Diemersdal since the Estate passed into their hands in 1885. More than 12 decades later, Diemersdal is a well-known landmark in the lush Durbanville Valley, one of the Cape’s oldest wine regions.
WINEMAKING: These grapes were harvested at optimum phenolic ripeness. Grapes for this wine comes from 50% 42 year old bush vines and the other 50% from 22 year old trellised vines. Fermented in 1 ton open fermenters for 4 days at 26-28ºC. Punch through and pumped over every 3 hours. 100% malo-lactic fermentation completed spontaneously in French oak barrels.
TASTING NOTE: Full bodied with dark berry and plum flavours and well balanced with complex aromas from French Oak barrels. A wine with a long lingering finish.
