Our OUPA WILLEM Red 2020 is a delightful blend of 82% Cinsault, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc from the Darling and Stellenbosch regions. The 2020 vintage has a beautiful red cherry and ruby red plum clarity in the glass. On the nose, you'll be greeted by aromas of sun-raised cranberry, red cherries, branded sandalwood, nori seaweed, sweet cedar spice, fynbos, crushed granite and graphite minerality. The palate is tart and fresh.
The ripeness is sweet fruited, tangy and intense and simply defies the wines 11.5% alcohol level! The tannins are supremely precise, fine grained and powdery, perfectly balanced by juicy red summer berry fruits, hints of marzipan and a subtle kiss of Turkish delight on the finish.
