Seventy gets its name from the 70’s era of wine styles in this northern part of the Stellenbosch region. The wine has the biggest pallet weight of all Ahren's wines and has predominant dark fruit with subtle underlying red fruit. The weight of the wine is well balanced with the acidity. The tannins are extremely well integrated, as with all his reds the must spends at least 4-6 weeks on the skin during and after fermentation, in order for the tannins to naturally soften.
Beautifully packed with a wax seal and an outer label that shows you exactly where the fruit is grown for this stunning wine.
Soil: Younger Decomposed Granite
Grapes: Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with Cinsault. This is a wine for dinner parties. The TTG team love this vintage.
|Area / Country||Bottelary, Stellenbosch, South Africa|
|Varietal||70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cinsault|
|Tasting Notes||The Cabernet makes it a big, but refined wine. Naturally fermented and matured in French oak barrels for 18 months. This has all the big black fruits – blackcurrants, blackberries and plums. The Cinsault lifts the tannins and gives a juicy freshness and pepperiness on the finish.|
