Cape Winemakers Guild

Haskell Paradigm 2008

All grapes were hand harvested and sorted in the cellar before fermentation. Pump-overs took place 4 to 5 times a day with delestage on the Merlot at 12 degreees balling. Average maceration took place on skins for up to 15 days. This is a special selection from exceptional new barrels in the cellar and specially bottled to sell at the Guild Auction. Tasting Notes: Vibrant ruby colour, fresh dark fruity nose – plums, black cherries and cassis. An underlying flavour of dark chocolate. The palate is very smooth and more-ish. The fruit is well balanced with subtle wood flavour which ends lovely and dry. I have a passion for blending and love classic Bordeaux style wines and especially the wines from the Medoc, especially Pauillac.
