Tololi Online Store

Regular price N$179.13

Six generations of Louws have practiced the art of winemaking at Diemersdal since the Estate passed into their hands in 1885. More than 12 decades later, Diemersdal is a well-known landmark in the lush Durbanville Valley, one of the Cape’s oldest wine regions.

Diemersdal forms part of the Wine of Origin Cape Town where cooling mists from the Atlantic Ocean roll over the vineyards every afternoon, contributing to the unique character of Diemersdal wines.

Description

Food suggestions:

Hearty beef dishes such as goulash and stroganoff.

Tasting notes:

Deep dark chocolate and enticing cedar aromas appear first on the nose, followed by wafting notes of blackberry jam, cherry, and cassis. The firm, well-structured palate features robust yet sweet tannins and a broad range of flavours ranging from black cherry and red fruits carried along by the richness of its oak and vanilla notes. It is long and smooth now, with an intriguing character that will continue to develop with years to come.

Maturation:

20 months oak maturation in 40% new 225L French oak barrels.

Oenology:

The grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness with the components harvested and vinified separately. Fermentation in open-fermenters for 5- days at 24 C- 28 C Punch-downs every 4 hours, fermented dry on skins. MLF completed spontaneously tanks before the wine was racked into 225L French Oak Barrels
