Louis Nel Buckleberry Sauvignon Blanc 2016
Blend: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
The name Buckleberry is derived from the hometown of Kate Middleton, and the concept was purposefully done to show the exuberance and outgoing nature of the wine.
The wine was purposely fermented very cold to ensure that as much flavours as possible is formed and preserved during fermentation. At higher fermentation temperatures nice flavours that are formed are often blown off, and cold fermentation prevents that. Fruit , fruit, fruit, fruit, tropical fruit all over with a yummy soft palate full of flavour, and softness and fullness all over the place.

Best enjoyed with pan fried Kingklip, Langoustines or Cape Rock Lobster fresh from the sea.
Louis Nel Black Forest Red 2016
Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot
The Shiraz and Merlot grapes used for this wine are from Stellenbosch, and were vinified separately. The grapes were picked at maximum fruit flavor ripeness, fermented on the skins, and pumped over four times per day until dry. The wine was then pressed and transferred to French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and finally aged for a total of 16 month in barrel before blending and bottling.
The wine shows lots of red fruit flavours on the nose, as well as subtle chocolate and oak flavours. The expectation on the nose is backed up on the palette, with soft luscious tannins, and delicious fruit flavours.
Enjoy with pan seared filet steak, roasted lamb shanks and pasta dishes.
Louis Nel Titanic Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Expect a lot of dark fruit, a little savoriness, cedar and spicy notes
