Vilafonte Series M 2010

  • Grape 45% Merlot, 41% Malbec,13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Cabernet Franc
  • Country South Africa
  • Region Western Cape
  • ABV 14%
  • Producer Vilafonte
  • Case size 6 / 75cl
  • A deep ruby color with an inky purple rim. Aromatics show opulence and youthful tension.
  • Complex layers of pomegranate, Boysenberry, and black cherry lead to baking spice, fresh pastry, and a peppery base note of teak wood shavings.
  • The palate shows a seamless fine structure, silky focus, and an alluring, supple texture. Fruit flavors are generous – luscious black raspberry and cherry, balanced by rich concentration and lingering espresso notes. This is a big, bold wine and although immediately accessible, cellaring will reward the patient collector for the next two decades or even more

 

This sensuous wine embodies the refined style and dignified elegance produced by selected vines planted on our vilafontes soils. A Malbec and Merlot dominant blend, opulent in nature, with a defining structure of Cabernet Sauvignon. Series M consists of Malbec (forty-eight percent), Merlot (thirty-four percent), Cabernet Sauvignon (fifteen percent), and Cabernet Franc (three percent). Fifty-one barrels were produced.

Winery

Zelma Long is one of America’s best-known winemakers with an enviable international reputation. She began her wine-making career at the Robert Mondavi winery, where she was soon promoted to Chief Winemaker. Zelma now oversees the winemaking and style development of the Vilafonté wines, working with the winemaker Chris de Vries. She is on site during the harvest, through pressing and barrelling, and then again at the blending and bottling stages. Mike Ratcliffe, co-founder of Vilafonté, is a leader in the Cape wine industry, and for many years has been keenly involved in black economic empowerment and land redistribution. Dr Phil Freese is the creator of the Vilafonté vineyard which he calls ‘different by design’. Having spent 13 years as Robert Mondavi’s Vice-President of Wine Growing, he designed and planted the first Opus One vineyards. He also initiated the remote sensing project with NASA which has provided modern technology for vineyard analysis and quality enhancement. Phil works with Vilafonté winegrower Edward Pietersen. This effective wine-growing combination continues to elevate the quality of the Vilafonté fruit to a level commensurate with the production of the world’s finest wines.
