2013 Haskell Vineyards
|Grapes||Cab Sauv, Shiraz|
Ruby red colour. The nose shows flavours of red cherries, black pepper, chocolate powder and hints of liquorice and pencil shavings. The palate has a soft minerally entrance and is full bodied with lovely ripe fruit tannins in perfect harmony with oak nuances. The wine ends very fresh and savoury. Best drink by 2023. Winemaker's notes (Aug 2018)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Cabernet/Syrah. Sweet and a tad simple and angular. For me the Fenix is much more subtle with rounder mouthfeel. Drinking range: 2019 - 2024 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Oct 2017)
The Haskell Vineyards estate is in the Helderberg, the revered Stellenbosch sub-region which contains many of South Africa's greatest wine names, the 23 hectares of vineyards neighbouring Rust en Vrede, Stellenzicht and Bilton.Dombeya is the original title of the estate and is the name for a wild pear tree that is native to the area. Designed to represent great value at its price point and to offer an insight into the capacity of the estate to make stylish wines of individuality.Haskell and Dombeya wines are made by leading winemaker and wine judge, Rianie Strydom, who is also the General Manager for Haskell Vineyards. Before moving to Haskell Vineyards, Rianie was the winemaker at the highly regarded Simonsberg estate, Morgenhof, for ten years.
Even before release, the Haskell brand has been making international wine waves. Awarded an elite five star rating in the upcoming 2010 John Platter Guide, Haskell also made history by becoming the first South African winery to win Best Red Wine and Best Wine in Show at the prestigious 2009 Tri-Nations Challenge, a yearly competition between the finest wines of Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
You know, you can be too traditional. Ring the changes, ditch the claret, bin the Burgundy, say "non" to Europe. Since Columbus sailed the ocean blue back in 1492 there's been a New World, and that New World is keen to sell us wine. Fragrant New Zealand Sauvignon, gutsy Californian Zinfandel, elegant Argie Pinot Noir, surprisingly elegant Australian and some new and exciting Monterey Chardonnay await. Tuck in.
