Anwilka Petite Frere
65% Syrah 34% Cabernet Sauvignon 1% Petit Verdot / 2014
Petit Frère is the second wine, and little brother, from renowned Stellenbosch property Anwilka, which merged with Klein Constantia Estate in mid-2012. The name is a tribute to Anwilka’s French heritage owed to co-owners Hubert de Boüard and Bruno Prats, both of whom are now shareholders in Klein Constantia and Anwilka. Under their expert guidance, Anwilka is celebrated both locally and internationally for the consistent, superior quality wines it produces. Based at the south end of Stellenbosch, with views of False Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, the 40 hectare red wine property is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Proximity to sea provides a specific microclimate that, together with the old ferricrete soils, produces rich and focused wines. An upfront nose with aromas of roasted spice and dark fruit. The palate is fresh and medium to full bodied with an supple tannin structure. Flavours of plums andspice conclude with a long elegant finish. The perfect accompaniment to most red meat dishes as well as duck and pork. Approachable now but will mature gracefully up to 5 years from vintage.
