Vilafonté is the coming together of great wine experience from California and South Africa. The vision that brought together the three founding Vilafonté partners, is the culmination of a life-long dream. A uncompromising determination to produce wines which stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the great wines of the world. Nothing less.
This blend displays a deep, intense ruby colour. The nose offers a remarkably complex fruit expression, opening with blackcurrant, blueberry and fresh juniper berry interwoven with sensuous violet perfume. Composed dark fruits transition to hints of chocolate and hazelnut praline. A subtle slate/lead-like minerality underlies a bittersweet, spicy cola note. The entry is plush and weighty, with an abundance of fine-grained tannins across the palate – most reminiscent of crushed velvet. Although immediately engaging, this blend will mature most gracefully, rewarding the patient collector.
