This wine demonstrates what’s possible when ancient winemaking techniques meet Abraham de Klerk’s cutting edge craftmanship.
The Amphora has amplified the wine as it matured, resulting in an aroma explosion of wild strawberry, blackcurrant, blueberry, white truffle, coriander seed, oregano, licorice, black olive and crushed black pepper.
The palate is a decadent cavalcade of dark cherries, black plum, rosella fruit, dark olive tapenade and dark chocolate with subtle sea salt undertones.
This wine has been aged in Amphora Terra Cotta, imported from Italy, and made from special porous clay that allows the wine to breathe correctly as it is ageing. This micro oxygenation causes the wine to soften as it matures and develops, without any oak flavours influencing the wine. The result is a true expression of the fruit being achieved in the finished wine. The clay also has anti-microbial properties to help protect the wine as it ages.
The amphora itself is a spectacular work of art. This is a grand wine – prepare for powerful, complex, divine aromas, flavours and effortless sophistication.
