Vrede en Lust 'Cotes de Savoye' 2015

Vrede en Lust 'Cotes de Savoye' 2015 49% Syrah, 45% Grenache & 6% Viognier

Tasting Notes

Sept 2018
The 2015 Vrede en Lust Cotes de Savoye from Franschhoek, South Africa drinks like a well made Cotes du Rhone, with a lovely floral lift of violets, white pepper and a hint of ginger spice to the red cherry and red berry fruit tones on the nose. Medium fuller bodied, this has an engaging smooth texture backed with sleek, finely tuned tannins that are perfectly integrated into the juicy red fruit flavors. Just now opening up this should drink beautifully over the next 2-3 years.

Winemaker Notes

This beautiful Rhône-style blend is the newest addition to the Vrede en Lust range. The vineyard development at Vrede en Lust over the past couple of years included the planting of Grenache and Viognier, giving us scope to produce more Rhône-style red wines. The name Côtes de Savoye is a tribute to Jacques de Savoye, the first owner of the property in 1688.
In 2002 the first vintage of wine from our farm was labeled as Jacques de Savoye to pay tribute to him, and after 13 years we’ve decided to return to our roots with this release.
An elegantly styled wine with aromas of violets, concentrated red fruit followed through with a soft, juicy palate and well-rounded tannins.
