KWV The Mentors Carmenere 2017
'a Carmenere to rival the best of Chile's efforts' 96 Pts Tim Atkin
Full-bodied red with notes of fresh raspberry, cumin and green peppercorn with hints of plum and vanilla. It is fresh and lively with soft integrated tannins; and on the palate, the wine is voluptuous and infinitely well balanced. Enjoy now, or cellar for up to 8 years.
The KWV Mentors range honours the diversity of terroir and climate which influence the differing South African wine styles. The grapes used to craft these wines are mentored through specific site selection, treatment in the vineyards, and special cellar care. The result? Wines without equal that reflect the best South Africa has to offer. Seriously special wine from talented young South African winemaker Izele Van Blerk. Only 1300 bottles produced!
'Well, well, well. Who would have guessed that the Cape could produce a Carmenere to rival the best of Chile's efforts with this under appreciated variety?' 96 Pts Tim Atkin
