Klein Constantia Anwilka Petit Frere 2014 75cl
“Petit Frère”, the 2nd wine from renowned Stellenbosch property, Anwilka, which merged with Klein Constantia Estate in mid-2012. The name is a tribute to Anwilka’s French Bordeaux heritage, owed to co-owners Hubert de Boüard and Bruno Prats. After establishing Anwilka in 2005, Prats and Bouard have expertly guided the property and its wine production, resulting in unique wines of a style highly celebrated both locally and internationally.
The grapes were hand-picked in small crates and were then sorted before and after destemming. Crushing and fermentation took place in stainless steel tronconic tanks, with gentle pump-overs and ten days of post-fermentation maceraction enabling the soft extraction of colour and tannins.

colour gives an opaque ruby core, edged by brightly youthful magenta-coloured rim. On the nose are abundant aromas of plums, pod vanilla & gently roasted spices. The palate is a plush core of dense, sweetly ripe dark fruit, laced with chocolate and spice. Generously rich flavours underpinned by supple oak tannins and bright acidity, leading to a full, dry and savoury finish. This wine has the potential and structure to be lay down for 6 to 8 years.
