Seven Sisters Range:

Fresh, youthful and inviting. This wine is a full-bodied wine with powerful varietal flavours of bell pepper, green apple and freshly cut grass. Good structure with balanced acidity.

The balance of fresh citrus fruits and rich melon characters give the wine a full-rounded palate that combines well with the subtle creaminess and nuttiness of the gentle oak. The natural acidity follows through to a fresh and clean finish.

A deep purple tint on the rim with delicious flavours of ripe strawberry, juicy plums and rich, red cherry. Produced in an early-drinking style with well-integrated wood and a soft, smooth finish.

This Pinotage is rooted in the Robertson Valley. The wine was matured on wood for 3 months to add weight and complexity.

Brutus Family Reserve Range:

The wine reflects purity of fruit which is enhanced by careful use of French oak barrels, resulting in a wine attaining elegance and complexity. The freshness of citrus fruit combined with gentle oak and toasty flavours leaves a lingering aftertaste.

Chardonnay grapes from young vines on Seven Sisters Vineyards blended with grapes from neighbouring Vineyards. Spontaneous fermentation took place in French oak barrels for 6 weeks. Malolactic fermentation occurred during alcoholic fermentation resulting in slightly higher acidity. Burgundy barrels were used with medium toasting and the wine was matured for 8 months in barrels before being blended with an unwooded portion of wine.

The wine is medium bodied with vibrant ripe flavours of cherries and plums, supported by the balanced use of French oak and complimented with notes of pepper spice.

Malolactic fermentation occurred in 500 litre French oak barrels and maturation took place in both 300 litre and 500 litre barrels with 20% new wood used, the remainder in 2nd and 3rd fill barrels. The wine was matured in barrels for 15 months before being blended with an unwooded portion of wine.

This blend consists of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and.Merlot. Complexity and balance are evident in this blend which expresses ripeness and structure. Rich concentrations of red berries, mulberries and blueberries are enhanced by oak spice from the French barrel maturation.
