From the House of Mandela - The wines are not just about the juice in the bottle. They are the story of the House of Mandela and the story of the rainbow nation of South Africa. Lineage and maintaining our legacy plays an important part of our story, and incorporating wine into the House of Mandela is our way of claiming who we are, where we come from and belong. It is a way of paying homage not only to our father and grandfather, but also honoring our ancestors

About the wine

A full-bodied wine with violets and plum aromas. An intensely concentrated palate with liquorice and oak spice in the backdrop. A rich, dark and complex wine with a smooth lingering taste.



Winemaking process

The bunches were sorted before destemming and crushing of the grapes commenced. The grapes were fermented in open top as well as stainless steel fermenters. Flavour and colour development was achieved by regular pump-overs, 3 times daily. The wine spent another 7-10 days on the skins after fermentation was completed. 30% new French Oak, 40% second fill and 30% third fill 225 L barrels were used for maturation and the wine aged for 13 months before final blending and bottling proceeded.
