Seriously Old Dirt by Vilafonte WO Western Cape, 2019

South Africa

Producer

South African

Grape Variety

Cabernet Franc

Named after the ancient soils on which Vilafonté vineyards are planted, Seriously Old Dirt is a youthful approachable style for earlier drinking yet still has good cellaring potential. I am told I am the first person outside of the winemaking team to taste the 2019 vintage and what a delight. The blend had been finalized by Zelma and Chris days earlier and will be bottled in December. It has mellow fruit aromas of plums and cherries over a savoury background with dark chocolate. It is supple and fine in texture with flavours of red apples, sour and maraschino cherries with almonds. It consists of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Malbec, 5% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc and was matured for 18 months in older French oak barrels.
