The Barony Sophie 2016 is a rich, complex blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. It's a perfect winter wine and will be available via our call centre and our online store within the next two weeks.
Our latest release is sure to be a popular one, judging by the popularity of its predecessor, Barony August 2014, that sold out after its release last year.
The colour of this Cabernet Sauvignon is a dark garnet-rouge. The nose shows fragrant cassis, dried herb and cocoa aromas that develop into bright and vibrant red berried fruits on the palate. The wine is elegant but has great depth with juicy tannins and a fresh acidity that contributed to its length and concentration.
We are excited to announce that Rosendal boasts five wines that achieved four stars in the Platter’s South African Wine Guide 2018, confirming our consistent quality of wines produced.
Platter’s by Diners Club is South Africa’s first and leading wine annual. The 2018 edition follows the popular and award-winning Platter’s format, with 941 South African wine producers, merchants and brands being featured, including 48 new ones, along with well over 8,000 locally produced wines (Ref- Wine on a Platter blog, Nov 2017).
