Aromas of clove and subtle white pepper followed by plum with hints of elegant spice. A luscious and rich palate followed by smooth, integrated oak and well balanced tannins.
Chakalaka consists of 6 grape varieties blended to produce a wine expressive of place. Each variety contributes in a different way to create this exciting wine. The 2016 growing season was is one of the best season for Swartland vineyards, with sufficient winter rainfalls and late rains in spring. The grapes were in the perfect condition to produce top quality wine with good concentrated colours and flavour profile. – Enjoy! – Charl du Plessis.
