Red Blends 2021 Winner: Aquitaine 2019
We are celebrating yet another award for one of our Rosendal Wines! Our 2019 Reserve Aquitaine received a silver medal at the 2021 Red Blends Challenge, and we couldn’t be prouder.
Our Reserve Aquitaine is a Bordeaux-style blend that highlights all the best aspects of these red wines. Since the blend is Cabernet-Franc driven, the wine has a few unique elements that reminds us why the blend has received this incredible award.
Only 6500 bottles of this wine was produced, using only the very best grapes from across the Western Cape. By blending Cabernet Franc, (55%) Cabernet Sauvignon, (23%) and Petit Verdot (22%) our winemaker was able to cultivate a complex blend.
The result, is a wine with intense perfumed notes of dried herbs and lavender, followed by cherry, blueberry and cigar box aromas. On the palate, the flavours are just as intense with ample structure and a lasting finish.
Everything about this wine is testament to the quality and the well-deserved award.
