LDP wine of the week- Rietvallei Estéanna Red 2009.

 

This week’s LDP wine of the week is the Rietvallei Estéanna Red 2009.

Deep, ruby red in colour. Expressive cherry and cassis aromas on the nose with delicate hints of violets. On the palate, the cherry flavours persist with just a hint of vanilla and cedar and a good lift of acidity. The tannins are sumptuous making this is a wellrounded wine which is showing beautifully in its youth but which has the structure and fruit to mature for a good 10+ years.

Excellent with rare roast beef or lamb and with more complex dishes of feathered game.
