KWV The Mentors Perold Tributum 2014 75cl
This elegant Cape Blend from the KWV's The Mentors range overflows with the aromatic fruit sweetness of plums, sour cherries and black pepper. The structured palate and juicy tannins can be attributed to great balance between fruit concentration and oak integration. The finish is focused, yet lingers in a velvet mouthfeel.
This wine is a blend of varieties from regions and sites that have consistently produced wines of outstanding quality and style. In making the Perold Tributum KWV set out to produce a wine that over time will be recognized as the ultra-premium benchmark in South Africa. Only the best varieties, regions and sites are therefore considered. Their winemaking focuses on balanced structure, concentration and finesse. They utilize a combination of whole-berry fermentation and gentle pump-overs to ensure every bit of flavour is captured, with Pinotage taking priority.
For this specific wine, the bunches were handpicked and sorted to ensure only the best of each variety went into the blend. After fermentation, the most promising wines of each cultivar were chosen to mature further in barrel. After 12 months, the best wines were singled out again and aged another six. This wine is truly about selecting the best-of-the-best!
