Paarl

Grape Variety

Cabernet Franc

Seriously Old Dirt refers to the ancient vilafonté soils dated between 750,000 to 1.5 million years old, on which the vines are cultivated. The 2017 Seriously Old Dirt is a deep ruby colour with warm aromas of mixed cooked fruits, vermouth herbs, floral notes and a hint of leather. Rich and supple, it is full bodied and has mellow flavours with vanilla, cooked brambly fruits and lingering bitter cherry flavours. Perfect ripening conditions produced a good harvest with grapes picked from February 6th. The 2017 is a blend of 37% Malbec, 36% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Cabernet Franc. Wine were matured for 21 months in older French oak barrels.
