Konkelberg Blend 54 2014

On the nose, one is greeted with flavors of a delightful mix of raspberries, mulberries and blackberries, which follows through on the palate. Spicy undertones of cloves and nutmeg leave a complex, full and lingering aftertaste.

in the vineyard : Rooted in the oldest viticulture soil in the world, it is made up of decomposed granite on the lower slopes of the Helderberg Mountain. This vineyard enjoyed the refreshingly cool breezes from False Bay (Atlantic Ocean) during the day and cool night air flowing down the mountain, resulting in even ripening of the berries and good natural acidity. The macro climate is maritime, with cold wet winters and sunny warm summers.

about the harvest: Harvested by hand in the early morning in small picking bins to ensure that perfect grapes reached the cellar. Biodynamic (organic) practices are followed and therefore no herbicides or chemical sprays were used in the cultivation of these grapes.
