MARIANNE Rosè 2018

The idea was to make a Provence style Rosé, light pale pink in color and elegant with subtle fruit and floral notes on the nose and pallet. The grape varieties used are true to a real Southern France style rosé. All four cultivars were harvested specifically for Rosé production and pressed immediately when arriving into our boutique cellar - only the free run and soft press juices were used. The Shiraz and the Grenache were cofermented to produce a fine bodied wine with elegant aromas of rose petal, fresh cranberry and raspberry with a crisp acidity. Fermented separately, the Cinsault gave subtle aromas of orange and white peach, whilst the Mourvedre gave slightly more pungent aromas of black currant and strawberry, both with a soft round pallet. After blending the wine was left to mature in stainless steel tank with occasional stirring up of the fine lees to ensure that all those fresh fermentation aromas are well protected. The final assemblage allowed for a fine, elegant and voguish Rosé in colour, aroma and taste.

MARIANNE Cape Blend 2015

We are delighted with our interpretation of the Cape Blend. The wine has a wonderful balance of complex red and black fruit, with a lively acidity and youthful tannins. A moreish red wine.

Anbaugebiet: Paarl

Food pairing: We recommend our Cape Blend alone or with a medieranean platter, or alongside barbeque meats.

Alc. 14% vol.

Restzucker: 2,0g/l

Restsäure: 5,5g/l

pH: 3,98

Vinification: The grapes were handpicked at phenolic ripeness and stored at 10 °C to ensure the finest flavor and freshness. Upon crushing, a temperature of 10 °C was maintained and both skins and juice were left in contact in French oak tanks for 10 days. Varying from stainless steel, this approach provides improved color and flavor stability. Upon fermentation, flavour and color is allowed to develop for a period of 4 weeks before the wine is transferred to 100% French oak 225l barrels for 16-22 months. The use of French oak allows the wine to retain certain flavors and extract tannin from the oak, resulting in a fuller mid pallet.

MARIANNE Sauvignon Blanc 2018

A warm-climate Sauvignon blanc giving a riper, bright yellow grape juice lends itself to a ‘Blanc-Fume’ style, a method often used in Bordeaux. A departure in style from the classic Cape Sauvignon makes for a unique wine. The result is a distinctive Sauvignon Blanc - a pretty nose of elder flower, yellow peach, lime and vanilla, with a broad, textured palate and coated acidity.

Anbaugebiet: Paarl

Rebsorten: 91% Sauvignon Blanc, 9% Semillion

Food suggestions: We recommend our Sauvignon Blanc among fish and seafood meal, or nice chevin toasts.

Alc. 14,5% vol.

Restzucker: 1,8g/l

Restsäure: 6,0g/l

pH: 3,28

Vinification: The grapes were handpicked at phenolic ripeness and stored at 10°C. The bunches were hand sorted before being pressed, maintaining a temperature of 10°C. The juice was fermented and matured for 9 months in 25% new French Acacia barrels, 25% in 2nd fill French Oak Barrels and 50% in Stainless steel tank to allow complexity to develop. During ageing on the fine lees, the lees were regularly stirred up in order to protect the delicate fruit aromas and to improve the mouthfeel of the wine.

MARIANNE Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Blackcurrant, dried blue berries, cigar box and nuances of vanilla pod fill the nose. The palate is well balanced with rich tannins providing a round, tasty mid and a long, slightly grippy finish. The rich black fruit and cigar box aromas combine harmoniously with the lingering tannins on the finish of the palate. This is an attempt to a classic old world style Cabernet Sauvignon rich in aroma and tannin with a great ageing potential.

Anbaugebiet: Stellenbosch

Rebsorten: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Food pairing: Our Shiraz will happily take on powerful flavours, rich and gamey. This wine will go along perfectly with ostrich or venison.

Alc. 14,5% vol.

Restzucker: 3,0g/l

Restsäure: 5,3g/l

pH: 3,63

Vinification: The grapes were handpicked at phenolic ripeness and stored at 10°C to ensure the finest flavour and freshness. Upon crushing, a temperature of 10°C was maintained and both skins and juice were left in contact in French oak tanks for 10 days. Varying from stainless steel, this approach provides improved colour and tannin stability. Upon fermentation, flavour and colour is allowed to develop for a period of 4 weeks before the wine is transferred to 35% new French oak barrels for 18 - 22 months. The use of new French oak allows the wine to retain certain flavours and extract tannin from the oak, resulting in a fuller mid pallet. By using only 35% new oak, the fruits within the wine are respected ensuring the wine is complex yet settled with great ageing potential.

Vintage: Hot and dry, with low rainfall / drought in the Cape. Despite irrigation, yields were at a record low, resulting in lower production, with small and concentrated grape berries. Good quality vintage with intense aromas and elegant tannins.

Vinification: The grape varietals were handpicked separately at phenolic ripeness and stored at 10 °C to ensure the finest flavor and freshness. Subsequent processing, fermentation and maturation was also carried out individually for each varietal. Upon crushing , a temperature of 10 °C was maintained and both skins and juice were left in contact in French oak tanks for 10 days for optimum color and flavor extraction. Upon fermentation, color and character is allowed to develop for a further period of 3 weeks before the wine is transferred to 100% new French oak barrels for 16-22 months. The use of new French oak allows the wine to retain certain flavoursand extract tannin from the oak. Being our flagship red, much care and attention is taken in selecting the finest barrels containing maximum flavor and character.

Terroir: Climate, soil, altitude and slope orientation are essential elements required in capturing as much varietal character as possible. The climate is mild to warm with southern winds, ensuring grapes are cooled to optimum temperature for maximum character and flavour. Soils are predominantly medium textured and an average annual rainfall of 800 mm ensures minimal irrigation.
