The Malan Family Selection
Frans Malan 2015
The wine displays a dense opaque colour with a perfume entrance of rich plums, vanilla pod and a dash of cigar box. These three varieties unite and form a powerful trio of concentrated black berry fruit. The tannins are soft and supple and the refined dry finish captures the characteristics of this Cape Style blend, leaving lingering notes of sweet plum and cedar oak.
Style: Dry red, Cape Style Blend
Wood maturation: 15 Months oaking. 90% French Oak, 10% American White Oak. 1% first fill, 80% 2nd fill, 12% 3rd fill, 7% other.
Cellaring potential: Will reach peak maturity five to eight years from vintage. Due to the elegance and fruit intensity it is also delicious to drink now.
