The Three Foxes Carignan 2015, Swartland

Tasting Note

Earthy and spicy flavours complemented by leather and black fruits particularly plum through to a robust finish. A real taste of South Africa's finbois, the equivalent of the South of France garrigue.

Producer Note

The Three Foxes is a small-scale winery set up in 2004 by three young South African friends. Their focus is making small parcels of outstanding wine (not more than 2000 bottles per vintage) from grapes sourced from the most exciting vineyards around the Cape.

Winemaking

50% of the grapes were whole-bunch fermented, with a daily punching-down of the cap. Following the fermentation, there was a two week post-maceration on the skins, prior to pressing. The wine was matured for 14 months in old 600L foudre oak barrels.

Serving Suggestion

Ideal with wild boar and richly flavoured meat dishes
