2013 Haskell Vineyards

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)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
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)
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.The estate was originally names Dombeya after a wild native pear tree that gows in the area, and this is the name used for the 'Dombeya' range, which is 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.The founding winemaker, Rianie Strydom, has now handed over the baton to Rudolph Steenkamp, who joined the estate as assistant winemaker and vineyard manager in June 2018. Rudolph has worked for four vintages at Groot Constantia, as well as in France.
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, elegant Australian and some new and exciting Mourvedre from Lodi await. Tuck in.
