2017 Sir Thomas Cullinan Red Blend
Blend: 70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting Notes: This Bordeaux-style blend is complex and concentrated showing aromas of black fruit and a hint of smoke. On the palate, you’ll taste notes of cherries and plums as well as savory notes of olives and black pepper. Broad polished tannins and a medium, plush acidity lead into a lengthy finish.
Sir Thomas Cullinan, named after the family’s renowned great-grandfather, is Remhoogte’s flagship wine. Individual rows of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are selected and fermented in small batches.
Since 1994, Remhoogte has been crafting premium wines in the esteemed Stellenbosch region of South Africa. With a similar climate and soil to Bordeaux, the region produces exceptionally complex wines. Remhoogte Wine Estate produces amazing small-batch values from some of South Africa’s best grapes. The estate focuses on minimal intervention, allowing the terroir and the grapes to tell their own story. All of Remhoogte’s wines are made using sustainable practices and are unfined and unfiltered (i.e., vegan!).
