Product Details

Tasting Notes

Rich, cassis and mulberries are immediate on the nose, supported by a subtle floral element from the Viognier.

The palate packed full of red berried fruit, orange peel, warming spice and vanilla.

The finish is both finely tuned and structured.

Storage Instructions

This wine can be drunk now but will further improve if carefully stored for up to 4 years

Background

History

Jean Engelbrecht was drawn to the wines of Silver Oak Cellars in USA, particularly their philosophy and focus on concentrating on a specific wine. Upon meeting Ray Duncan, proprietor of Silver Oak, a friendship was formed which included visits to both continents. The synergy that developed between the two families led to the formation of Cirrus Wine Company. The view taken by the partners was one of starting off small, and to ensure that the venture was laying a strong and solid foundation for the future. The maiden vintage of this wine was in 2003. This wine is the expression of the long-term view between two families that believe wine, above all should bring people together.

Regional info

The vineyards are situated at the upper end of the valley, providing slightly warmer and more moderate climatic conditions, together with Mediterranean rainfall of approx 650mm per annum results in optimum grape berry ripeness. The joint venture draws from the best of both worlds, capturing the essence of both France (Rhone) and South Africa (Stellenbosch) in the wine.
