Description

Bottelary Hills Estate Blend 2020
In the 1600s our hills were used as an outpost on the two-day trek from Cape Town to Stellenbosch. They were named “Bottelary” after a ship’s pantry. In 1946, our great-grandfather traded in the stark Karoo landscape for the exciting promise these hills had to offer. Today, it’s been our home for four generations. This blend celebrates our region’s harvest made by real farmers.

TASTING NOTE
This stylish and powerful red blend is our all-rounder with notes of dark berries and cherries. The palate boasts richness, concentration and dense fruit.

IN THE VINEYARD
Unirrigated vineyards ranging between 5 and 25-years-old. Yields range between 5 and 7 tons per hectare. Soil types are predominantly Clovelly and Tukulu.

IN THE CELLAR
Grapes are hand-harvested, crushed, destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks for 5-7 days (varietal dependent). The must is inoculated with certified biodynamic yeast strains to promote varietal and terroir characters. After very gentle pressing. The wine is transferred to stainless steel tanks for malo-lactic conversion.
After completion, the wine is racked, stabilized and transferred to 225l and 300l French and Hungarian oak barrels for 16 to 18 months (varietal dependent). The wine is blended after ageing and stored in concrete tanks until bottling.

AGEING
