Barrel Talk – The Definable Moment of Releasing the First 2014 Vintages
Last time we shared our end of harvest report and a sneak preview on the status of the 2014 wines in the cellar. Now we have successfully bottled the much anticipated Lady M 2014 (unwooded Pinotage), a wine with a history. A dedication to Marianne and her impeccable taste for opulent wines. We can happily report that this wine lives up and exceeds to its predecessor’s standards, it shows a beautiful, youthful, deep purple to red color. Put your nose near the glass and there are intense bursts of red and pungent stewed fruits. It erupts with bright and zesty aromas, the palate is no different, as its zingy elegance and mouth feel leave your taste buds puckering with fruit and freshness alike. Lady M 2014 was the first wine to bottle of the 2014 vintage, and is to be followed by Pinotage Blanc 2014 and Pinotage Rosé 2014. All extraordinary wines, for sophisticates we might even add.
