Boet Erasmus 2011
Our top red wine from Vrede en Lust, named after Dana and Etienne’s late grandfather. He was a long term Vice President of the International Rugby Board, played a major role in their lives.
This wine is an elegant Bordeaux blend, incorporating the classical varietals and showcasing abundant fruit, perfectly balanced with the French oak used during maturation.
- IWSC 2013 - Silver medal winner
Dominant dark berry aromas, followed by pencil shavings and cedar on the nose. Layers of flavours with clean lines. A wonderful balance between the elegance of the wine, oak and the purity of the fruit.
Cultivars are picked at optimal ripeness and fermented in Stainless steel tanks, with a portion completing malolactic fermentation in 225L oak barrels. The wine is matured in French oak (35% new) for 16-18 months. Bottled under Stelvin and natural cork closures.
54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot , 3% Malbec
