Stellenrust Simplicity 2012

Product code: 13STE8B2012

The nose shows spicy mocha flavours and some vanilla notes derived from the addition of American oak. The palate is rich and strong, filled with ripe fruit, pepper and hints of violets, cassis and dark chocolate; smoothed with subtle Merlot flavours and vanilla oak. And the name Simplicity? - well, many great things are born from keeping it simple

Production information

Producer: Stellenrust

Stellenrust bottled its first wine on the farm in 1928. Today the winery is run by the brothers Tertius (winemaker) and Kobus (viticulturist), and is one of the largest family-run Fairtrade estates in Stellenbosch, with 500 hectares of land under vine.  The brothers are committed to following their father’s dream: to give back to the workers, who themselves had given so much to the farm.

Production note

Where our Bottelary property is known for sweeter fruit, fruits from our Helderberg farm are much more extracted and dense. Trellised vines from our Golden Triangle and Bottelary farm. In the production of this wine, we use 50% Shiraz, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Merlot from both properties and blend it immediately after second fermentation. It is then taken to 90% French oak and 10% American oak for a period of 12 months.
