Idiom Rosso di Stellenbosch 2020


Sold Out

A lively, medium-bodied red wine with notes of red cherries and raspberries. Delicate oaking in 2nd fill and older barrels contributes to both fruity and savoury notes continuing on the palate. A beautiful, aromatic expression of this cultivar with good acidity and plenty of potential. A perfect match for antipasto or Italian-style meat and pasta dishes.

Sangiovese (97%), Barbera (3%)

Vinification Details

Grapes are harvested in the early hours of the morning into 20kg lug boxes. The grapes are then transported in a refrigerated truck to the winery where it spends overnight in cold storage to get a uniform temperature on all grapes. The next day the grapes are bunch and berry sorted before being lightly crushed in stainless steel tanks for fermentation. The fermentation takes 7-11 days before the wine is pressed and allowed to settle before being racked and inoculated for malo-lactic fermentation, after which the wine is transferred to 225L French oak barrels for maturation. Before bottling the wine is lightly filtered.
