Swartland Winery Winemakers Collection Granite Rock Red 2016

Swartland Winery's Winemaker's Collection is an expression of Swartland's finest terroir. The wines are crafted using carefully sourced grapes from small bush vines grown on site specific vineyards that are planted in granite rich soils expertly suited to the cultivation of Rhône varietals. The Granite Rock Red is a red Rhône style blend of Mourvèdre (60%), Syrah (21%) and Carignan (19%) grapes. Ripe mulberry and fresh raspberry flavours upfront followed by seamless soft oak nuances. Good follow-through of the fruit flavours onto the palate, complemented by soft tannins and a long, smooth finish.
