A word from Albert Ahrens
Classic Stellenbosch old style Red. All my wines are address specific, from a unique terroir or Appellation as the French call it. This is a classic 1970’s era style red from the Bottelary ward in Stellenbosch. It’s a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Cinsault. The aim of this wine is to produce a wine that defines the Bottelary ward, and hopefully in future becomes the identity style of this special part of the Stellenbosch wine region.
LABEL ART – The SEVENTY label is intense as this wine is always a mouthful of flavour & texture! The brush strokes show this intensity in an abstract manner of how the underlying dark blue flavour profile of the Cabernet Sauvignon blends over time with the dark red Cabernet Franc and the lighter red fruit and the old bush-vine Cinsault. The combination forms a harmonious deep dark red with soft combined tannins.
