Mooiplaas Wine Estate  Rosalind
Bordeaux Blends (containing two or more of the following: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec). () Barrel fermented/barrel matured/wooded (staves, chips or wood rice) 2021 and older


Wine was matured for 18 months in small barrels. Only the best barrels in the cellar were selected for this wine. In line with our approach of minimal interference, the wine was bottled with only minimal pre-bottling filtration and no stabilization. A sediment is natural and to be expected. 25% 1st fill, balance 3rd and 4th fill. 100% French oak. Rosalind, meaning beautiful rose, is a Bordeaux blend with elegance and balance that can stand the test of time. The wine has an intense dark colour, the palate shows a good tight grip of oak tannins, balanced with excellent fruit and good length. The Cabernet Franc and Merlot lend wonderful elegance to the blend. The wine should evolve well over time, and has the structure and concentration to age for 10 to 20 years.
