Vondeling Philosophie 2015 750ml
A Limited release red blend: Cabernet Sauvignon 85%, Cabernet Franc 7%, Merlot 6%, and Malbec 2%.
Philosophie, is a brave endeavour in which we attempt to marry the mind, the heart and the soil as we celebrate the diversity of Vondeling. Each year a talented artist is commissioned to illustrate a rare Paardeburg flower in the medium of their choice. This vintage, the talented Edwina Ellis has illustrated the bold Star of Winter flower for this label.
A deep, dark, vibrant red colour. A complex and sensuous nose of dark chocolate, black cherry, raspberry and sundried tomato, Beautifully infused with aromatic truffle, vanilla pod and subtle graphite undertones.
The palate is dense and bold yet shows some lovely classic restraint. Ripe plum and lilted cassis lead with underlying layers of cured tobacco leaf, salted olives and expressive, broad tannin.
