Lanzerac, Le Général, Stellenbosch, South Africa, 2016
This ‘Left Bank Blend”, made from 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Malbec, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Merlot, was matured in a combination of new and 2nd fill 300 litre French oak barrels for a period of 20 months. The 4 varietals were individually fermented and matured before careful blending and bottling.
The Lanzerac Le Général is a limited barrel selection of the best red wine of the 2016 vintage. This full-bodied Cabernet-based blend announces vanilla and nutmeg spice before a flood of dark berries, cooked plums and blackcurrants assail the palate. Dark chocolate and hints of smoke is supported by sturdy smooth tannins and an endless finish.
