About this Item
'Upstaged at times by Classic below, as rousing but altogether more fleshy, palate-friendly and lip-smackingly delicious. 99 reflects cellar’s passion for quality – “only the finest, cleanest, ripe fruit” – ruthless selection (4-5 t/ha yield). Oozes concentration, flavour, class: huge ruby colour; forest berries jostle with mocha under cover of firm, palate far too young to unveil its considerable charm. Hallmark is stylish, measured penetration in the mouth, deliberately understated rather than immediately opulent. 8% cabernet adds electricity. Oaked 2 years 80% new French barriques. 14% alc. 2 500 cases.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2002
