Kaapzicht Kaleidoscope Red
Integrated flavours of black and red berries, tea leaves and spice invite a sip of this easy drinking blend; the gentle structure, with soft tannins supporting a core of sweet berry fruit, adds friendly drinkability; medium bodied with a well-rounded savoury finish.
Vines were planted in Clovelly type soil. Blend of 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Pinotage, 10% Cinsaut, 6% Petit Verdot, 6% Merlot and 4% Shiraz. The cultivars were vinified separately and then blended together. NT112 yeast was used. Pumping over was done 3 times per day in red wine tanks. Some French oak staves were used in the tanks to give the wine some complexity.
Kaapzicht was acquired by the Steytler family in 1947 and following a significant refocus beginning in the 1970’s has become an iconic producer. Current Cellarmaster Danie Steytler Jr has recently taken over winemaking from his father and continues the proud record established under Danie Snr.
Enjoy with tapas.
