SylvanVale Vineyards has released three new vintages recently. The SylvanVale Cabernet 2005 and SylvanVale Pinotage Reserve 2005 have both been given four star ratings in the Platters Wine guide for 2011.
SylvanVale Cabernet 2005 is an exceptional wine! The nose is fresh and shows red and dark cherry fruits. The wine has a wonderful balance of oak nuances which hint at the complexity of the wine. The elegance and fineness in the wine will just get better with time in the bottle at the correct cellar conditions. Enjoy with a creamy and full flavoured cheese or with steak, oxtail and warm rich bredies.
SylvanVale Pinotage Reserve 2005 Full bodied with sweet cherry and a touch of mint. The wood is balanced with hints of spice. The complexity of the wood and the ripe soft tannins create a solid platform for the wine to age to its complete uniqueness. This wine will age well for 10 years plus. A perfect match to enjoy with rich meat dishes such as lamb shank & oxtail. Also well recommended to pair with game.
SylvanVale Family Reserve 2005 Intense brick-red colour, with a complex bouquet of blackcurrants and violets. This is a full-bodied, mature, well balanced and completely satisfying blend of Cabernet Sauvignon , Pinotage and Shiraz. Wonderful oak undertones with a lingering spicy finish. Enormously good with beef or game! This is a grand wine for any elegant occasion.
Watch out for our SylvanVale Dry Cabernet Rose 2011 due for release later this year and a Sauvignon Blanc 2011, that will be released under our Ghost Tree label just in time for Summer.
Join us for dinner any evening of the week until 31 October 2011 and enjoy a FREE SylvanVale wine tasting.
