- In stock, ready to ship
PRODUCER: A visit to Laborie affords you the opportunity to reminisce about the Cape as it once was. Laborie has been producing fine wines since 1698 and more than 300 years on, is one of the oldest wine farms in South Africa.
Rain during the growing season caused vigorous growth and high disease pressure with colder spring temperatures and late flowering. Cooler conditions in early summer led to the harvest commencing late by up to two weeks on early cultivars. Ensuing warmer temperatures however brought the vintage back on schedule, followed by some cold spells that resulted in a longer ripening period.
TASTING NOTES: This pale blush MCC shows prominent aromas of red berries, flambéed plum and pomegranate with undertones of oyster shell on the nose. The palate is seductively fresh and persistent with a lingering aftertaste of honey cake and sliced grapefruit. The mousse is ne and soft, leaving the taste buds with a tantalized sensation.
