Wined Down

Vilafonte Series C 2019



The Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc defines the style of this wine.  Firm, powerful and concentrated; rich in fruit at release – blended for longevity.  The Cabernet Sauvignon is harvested from our most revered blocks while the Cabernet Franc aromatics display as hues of violet and elegance.  Velvety in nature with primary red fruits, the Merlot block Z forms an integral part of this blend. Limited production.

Tasting notes

Series C 2019 displays an intense ruby-purple colour and a vibrant, crimson rim. Dense on opening, this blend offers seductively fragrant layers of blackberry, cassis and baked plum, perfectly offset by a savoury, hoisin sauce note. Opulent floral notes; violet and lilac harmoniously blend to fresh-crushed juniper berry, pencil shavings, nuanced dark chocolate and sweet, warm nutmeg. The palate reveals a plush, expansive entry, with vivid continuity. Fine-grained tannins throughout embody a cashmere embrace, building on the fine and assertive structure. Sumptuous black berry fruits are expressive and well-defined, underpinned by a mouth-watering core with effortlessly long finish. While alluring in its youth, the 2019 Series C promises a decade or more of cellaring to realise its full potential.
