Remhoogte 'Chronicle' Estate Blend
Remhoogte Wine Estate believes in minimal intervention, allowing the terroir and grapes from their Simonsberg-Stellenbosch vineyards to tell their own story. Their 'Chronicle' is a full-bodied, complex blend of French grapes and Pinotage, creating a terroir-driven wine that is simultaneously Bordeaux-esque and distinctly South African, further twisting into a New World wine with the addition of carbonically macerated Syrah for fruitiness and aromatics. Concentrated aromas of chocolate, cherry, and plum lead into rich flavors of cassis, anise, and white pepper. It has moderate, integrated tannins and a long, spicy finish. Chronicle is unfined and unfiltered (i.e., vegan!), and saw two years oak aging in 30% new French oak.
