Vilafonte Series C 2019
Winemaking and Maturation
Twenty two months in sixty seven percent new French oak barriques, with a balance of older French oak. Series C 2015 consists of Cabernet Sauvignon (fifty seven percent), Merlot (nineteen percent), Cabernet Franc (fifteen percent) and Malbec (nine percent). Forty four barrels were produced.
Series C 2015 shows great depth of colour and an impressive red-black to the rim. An intriguing nose opens with generous layers of dark fruit, an attractive cassis and French lavender perfume. Finally notes of pencil shavings, cacao and cedar elevates the complexity of this blend.
On the palate Series C shows poise, with silky and seamless integration of tannins, refreshing mid-palate acidity with rich fruit and caramelized woody flavours that have great length. This wine exemplifies both freshness and concentration of fruit with great potential to mature and evolve over the next decade or more.
