Terre Brulee Le Rouge 2016

Terre Brulee Le Rouge 2016 Shiraz/Cinsault blend out of the Swartland

Tasting Notes

11/1/18
The nose is quite vibrant with engaging freshness and lift to the cherry and raspberry fruit notes that have an interesting earth and light spice element to the wine’s aromatics. Medium fuller bodied the vibrancy of the red fruit flavors carry over from the nose, with perfect balance between the savory earth tones and sweet core of red fruit. The tannins frame the fruit perfectly leading to a dry finish. Reminding of a well made Cotes du Rhone red this is drinking beautifully as we speak and should show well over the next couple of years.

Ripe and fresh, with an engaging beam of raspberry coulis and cherry paste flavors, backed by red licorice and singed cinnamon notes. Sleek finish. Shiraz and Cinsault.
89 pts Wine Enthusiast Dec 2017
A blend of 60% Shiraz and 40% Cinsault, this is a well-balanced and attractive wine. It offers up hints of black tea, bergamot and turned earth that grace the black plum and berry core. Medium tannins lend a framing structure to the ripe fruit flavors, finishing on whispers of pencil lead and toasted oak.



Winemaker Notes

This Shiraz-Cinsault blend is an opulent expression of berries and blackcurrant. The palate is smooth and lingering with refined, soft tannins. Crafted with a French flair, Le Rouge is fresh, balanced and appealing.
