Tasting notes - Intense dark ruby red in colour, this 100% Carignan is an exciting and complex blend of mocha chocolate and ripe red fruits, with nuances of spice on the nose. These rich aromas carry through onto the palate, with more vibrant red fruits and mocha undertones, combining with rich, dried peach. The fruit is neatly framed by elegant tannins, completing this complex and balanced wine. 

 

Swartland Winery Limited Release Swartland Carignan 2020

A well flavoured wine with savoury roasted meat and
herbal flavours through to a lip smacking finish
Producer Note
Big open skies, arid deserts, the vast flowing landscape, with its unforgiving climate and
rugged bush vines, this is wild country, this is Swartland. The contrast with manicured
Constantia and oh-so-cool Stellenbosch couldn't be greater. But right now, Swartland is
the most exciting wine region in South Africa. A new wave of winemakers are making
ground-breaking wines from Rhône varietals and it is part of a revolution that has got
everybody talking. The Swartland Winery is producing iconic and award winning wines
in this fashionable and dynamic region, so we have joined forces with them to create a
unique, distinctive and expressive wine range that has been masterfully blended for the
UK palate. We think something this good, is definitely worth talking about!
Vineyard
The grapes come from 100% old bushvines in the Swartland region. This hot, dry climate
has an average temperature range of 25°C to 35°C and an annual rainfall of between
450 mm and 600mm, but the altitude of the vineyard, at 300 metres above sea level,
creates a cooler oasis in this arid landscape. The vineyard is managed using minimal
intervention and environmentally friendly farming practices. The vines are grown in
granitic soils, which retain the heat and promote even ripening of the fruit. These
vineyard characteristics combine to produce wines which are truly expressive of the
vibrant terroir.
Winemaking
The grapes were harvested at phenolic ripeness and then cold soaked for three days.
The must was inoculated with selected yeasts and underwent four pump-overs per day
during the fermentation process. Malolactic conversion took place in barrel, followed
by eight months ageing in second and third fill barrels.
Tasting Note
This 100% Carignan delivers aromas of dried cranberry and raspberry complemented
by hints of liquorice and baking spice. Rich and smooth on the palate, the elegant
tannins frame the fruit through to a hint of graphite on the finish.
