Wellington Wines ‘La Cave’ Cape Blend 2019
Whilst the Merlot rounds off the flavour profile with juicy berry flavours, the grapes were harvested at optimal condition and matured separately for eight months. The best oak casks were selected to make up the final blend and spent an additional 10 months in wood for a further maturation period before being bottled.
Inviting with bright, ripe fruit and black cherry, dark chocolate and woody vanilla pods unravel on the nose. The palate is full-bodied with luscious red berry fruit, concentrated dried cranberries and wood spice supported by firm, broad tannins and a well-balanced acidity. The definition of a refined Cape Blend.

Our flagship range celebrates the early years of winemaking when wines were stored in caves during maturation and the recent discovery of a series of caves below our very own cellar. The grapes for the wines are meticulously hand-selected from the very best vineyard blocks and we gently handle the grapes in the cellar with minimal disruption. The range consists of a Chenin Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinotage, Cape Blend and Shiraz, with our red wines matured in small first-fill French oak barrels before being bottled.
