2014 L'Avenir Stellenbosch Classic


This elegant and delicious red blend is comprised of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, with Merlot and Cabernet Franc playing supporting roles. A deep rich garnet in your glass, the nose is complex: sweet red fruits intermingle with hay bales and dried mixed herbs. The palate is an expression of intense fruitiness and dark berries. The spicy-ripe tannins are well suited to rich and hearty cuisine.

ABV % = 14



Stellenbosch is one of the most famous wine regions in all of South Africa. This coastal region in the southwest is impacted by the Benguela current from Antarctica, which brings cool breezes from the ocean and fosters ideal growing conditions. Stellenbosch is best known for international varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, as well as Chenin Blanc (locally called Steen). Chenin Blanc here makes whites that are lean and pretty, with intense minerality, beautiful citrus fruit, and a finish which never quits. They truly rival some of the best from the Loire Valley of France. The great red wine of South Africa is Pinotage, which offers both fruit and earth, with the body of Syrah, or soft Gamay.
