Theseus 2011

R 270.00

Theseus, the mythical King of Athens who travelled widely in search of adventure was most famously known for the slaying of the Minotaur in the labyrinth of Crete. He was assisted by Ariadne, Dark Lady of the Labyrinth, who later married Dionysus, god of wine (Bacchus – Roman). This wine, a rich and subtle blend of five varietals, has been produced to give an intense and unforgettable experience – a true “Legend of the Labyrinth”.

Tasting Notes

A classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Purple in colour, showing some maturation. The nose is forthcoming with blackberry, black cherry and cassis. The palate is full and juicy with soft, fine, well integrated tannins. The wine shows great depth with a long, lingering finish.


Winemaker's Notes

The wine was produced from handpicked grapes from our premier vineyards. Four pump overs were done per day, adding to colour, richness and tannins. The different grape varietals were fermented separately with extended maceration on skins after fermentation. Only the best barrels were selected for this wine. The wine was aged for 24 months in 80% new and 20% second fill 225L French oak barrels. Wine was stabilized and bottled in June 2014. Drink now or age up to 2025.
