The First Drop
KWV South Africa Limited is one of the leading wine and spirits producers in South Africa.
Extended wood maturation resulted in a beautiful amber colour with orange zest, dried fruit, caramel and nuttiness on the nose. This full flavoured wine explodes with fruit, marzipan and toffee on the palate, with a well balanced sweet finish.
Served chilled before or after a meal with cheese nor chocolates
Specially selective grapes were harvested, de-stemmed and inoculated in yeast. Fermented till desired sugar levels were reached and then fortified with natural grape spirit to stop fermentation. The resulting port was then matured in french oak barrels for 8-10 years.
