Nitida Gambit 2012

Wine from a good vintage and a selection of the finest barrels. Nitida has made a St Emilion style Merlot-dominant red blend for many years and these wines have always included a dollop of Cabernet Sauvignon. With this particular wine, we have intentionally left out the Cabernet Sauvignon to differentiate it from our flagship red. This wine highlights the unique terroir of Durbanville, with the very elegant tannins and great fruit expression associated with the area. Tasting Notes: A complex wine displaying robust red fruit from the Merlot and dark lingering fruit from Cabernet Franc. The Petit Verdot adds colour, depth and structure and spiciness. The tannins are elegant and approachable.
