Cronier: Reserve Le Mieux 2016

This unique blend of noble cultivars is deep in ruby colour with a lovely concentration of blackberry, plum and red currant fruits on the nose. The palate is rich in ripe berries with hints of mocha and chocolate. The tannins are firm yet accessible.

VITICULTURE:

The grapes for this wine come from the Paardeberg Region. The soil are well drained and typified as Swartland/Glenrosa soil types.

WINEMAKING:

The grapes are harvested at optimum ripeness to ensure good fruit, dark ruby red colour and good structure. The grapes are destemmed and crushed and after directly pumped into fermentation tanks. Cold maceration is applied for two days before fermentation to extract as much colour and flavor as possible. After fermentation is started, the wine on the skins is left to ferment at temperature 23-26 degree Celsius. During fermentation the skins and the must is continually mixed for optimum flavor and colour extraction as well as even fermentation.

The wine been matured for 24 months in new first fill French Oak barrels and another 3 months in second fill French Oak barrels.
