Altydgedacht Barbera 2018
👃🏼 Vanguard carries notes of cherry, plum, hint of oak, cedar wood, some dried leaves, and savoury game. Fairly open.
👄 Palate displays ripe black cherries and blackberries. Supremely clean fruit. Great clarity. Tannins are super silky, with some lovely spice on the tail. Red cherry acidity emerges slowly, and lingers delightfully. A decanter won’t be wasted here.
🔬 Durbanville fruit. Dryland farmed from 26-yr-old vines. Fermented in a combination of open fermenters & stainless steel tanks. Barrel-matured for 15 mnths (30% American oak).
