2015 FAITHFUL HOUND

2015 FAITHFUL HOUND

After rigorous selection of all five Bordeaux varieties from some
of the finest vineyards in the Cape, we have the option of
sorting grapes on arrival before destemming begins. The
fermentation process is initiated by naturally occurring yeast,
and finished by a selected strain, added during the course of
fermentation. Gentle extraction and long maceration time are
the hallmarks of the winemaking style, followed by barrel
maturation.

Our Winemakers’ Tasting Notes

The 2015 vintage needs no introduction having been widely
hailed as one of the best in living memory. The wine has a
deep, brooding colour with a dark core and a deep
mahogany rim. The first nose greets with ripe brambles,
touches of cassis and subtle oak-spice. It is generous and
inviting, but there’s also a subtle nod to classic restraint in
aromas of leafy tobacco and freshly turned earth. With each
sip, richly textured flavours of Christmas pudding and ripe
plums course the palate. Offset by sweetly infused
Jamon-Iberico notes this is a layered and complex wine,
unveiling successive waves of flavour as it evolves. Robust
enough to be enjoyed on its own, or as an accompaniment to
a fine cigar, the 2015 Faithful Hound will reward pairing with
venison dishes and rustic fare.
