Vilafonte is located in the Simonsberg Paarl region of South Africa and produces just two wines - Series M and Series C, which are both red wines of the highest quality. From a 40 acre vineyard Vilafonte specialises in the blending of its Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec varietals to produce fabulous New World style Bordeaux red blends.
The Series C 2016 displays plummy hues with an inky, red-black colour.
A deep, primary wine with concentration of dark berry fruits, including black cherries and dried
blackcurrants that segue to darker chocolate, liquorice, molasses, and hints of pencil shavings. The
wine is subtle and continues to reward with time in the glass, blossoming with sophisticated violet
notes and characters of blonde tobacco and spice. The palate offers a sensuous and inviting overture.
Tannins are firm yet plush, giving structure and velvety depth of flavour. A surprisingly soft entry, this
wine builds in intensity, showing fullness of body and a long finish, interlaced with complex dark fruit.
Series C 2016 is quietly powerful showing alluring elegance. Although immediately engaging, cellaring
will reward the patient collector.
