|Grapes||Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot|
|Country/Region||South Africa, Stellenbosch|
Stark-Condé were named in the ‘First Growth’ category of Tim Atkin’s special report on South Africa in 2019 whilst winemaker Rudger van Wyk was named Young Winemaker of the Year 2019. All in all they’re very much an estate on the rise and we’re very excited to welcome them to the Museum Wines portfolio.
From their well-known Three Pines vineyard. The grapes were hand-harvested and hand-sorted and fermented in open tanks with hand-punchdowns throughout. Matured for 20 months in small French oak, 70% new. A small amount of Petit Verdot (6%), Cabernet Franc (4%) and Malbec (2%) was blended in to enhance the mouthfeel and perfume. An excellent vintage of Cabernet that will reward careful cellaring.
This wine has been a 2x Six Nations Wine Competition trophy winner; a 4x Platter 5-star wine; and a 2x Old Mutual Trophy winner.
