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 M 2015 exhibits plummy hues with an inky red-black colour.
The wine leads with rich fruit characters of red plums, cherries and blueberry confit . Overtones of thyme
and sage lead to a more savoury beef bouillon note, perfectly offset by warm and enticing hints of chocolate,
oak and brioche. Oak aromas are well integrated and support a rich core of concentrated fruit and Peony
floral notes. On the palate, Series M opens with succulent richness, with a fleshy, mouth-watering core,
leading to exceptional concentration and length of fruit on the finish. It shows both finesse and intensity,
eliciting plushness on the palate
