Vilafonté Series ‘C’ 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.
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.
