Cape Winemakers Guild

Haskell Vineyards Paradigm 2008

All grapes were hand harvested and sorted in cellar before fermentation. 4-5 pump-overs a day with delestage on Merlot at 12 degrees balling. Average maceration on the skins for up to 15 days. This is a special selection from exceptional new barrels in the cellar and bottled to sell at the Guild Auction. Tasting Notes: Vibrant ruby colour, fresh dark fruity nose – plums, black cherries and cassis. Underlying flavour of dark chocolate. Palate very smooth and more-ish. Fruit well balanced with subtle wood flavour, ending lovely and dry.
