Case of Vilafonte Seriously Old Dirt
A Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend guided, crafted & matured by the Vilafonté team. The vines are planted, not only on our Vilafonté property, but also in specifically selected ancient soils found in and around the Western Cape of South Africa.
It’s all about the dirt. Regionally agnostic, soil specific.

This Cabernet Sauvignon lead blend initially greets with a vibrant expression of fruit. Unfolding with fresh plum, black raspberry, mulberry and ripe strawberry. These fruits are beautifully intertwined with subtle spicey notes of shaved nutmeg and dried sage. Palate entry is smooth, luxuriously coating with a silky texture from the fore-palate, broadening on the mid-palate and finishing with layered richness. A line of fresh acidity adds energy to this medium bodied wine. Soft, silky tannins are well integrated, allowing immediate enjoyment, while balanced structure will allow gracious cellaring.
