Anwilka Stellenbosch 2017 (6x75cl)
2017 will be remembered as one of the all-time great vintages for red wine in Stellenbosch and we will certainly be serving this one at home...
As a general rule there have been plenty of stunning international collaborations with some of the greats of Bordeaux and this is another example... Lowell Jooste (of Klein Constantia) joined forces with two very well-known Bordeaux wine personalities Hubert de Boüard (Château Angélus) and Bruno Prats (Château Cos d’Estournel)
Awarded 5 stars in Platters Wine Guide and other critics have been very complimentary....
"The 2017 Anwilka was aged for 19 months in 50% new oak (400-liter barrels) and the rest in second-fill. It has a pure, seductive bouquet of boysenberry and cassis fruit, the vanilla-y oak seamlessly integrated and not imposing itself like older vintages of Anwilka. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins, and slightly granular in texture, presenting layered black fruit laced with tobacco, allspice and touches of cassis. Very seductive on the finish. This is an almost Napa-like Anwilka that requires 3–4 years in barrel.” 92 pts Neal Martin
