About this Item

2014 Series C
4 (1 x 4) 750ml

Vilafonté is a high-profile, internationally collectable wine founded in 1997. Meticulous viticulture and modern cellar practices ensured that Vilafonté is at the cutting-edge of fine wine. The Merlot and Malbec dominated Vilafonté Series M offers more spice and flair, while the Cabernet Sauvignon based Vilafonté Series C is a serious and more structured wine. The maiden vintages offers a perfectly mature and poised wine almost two decades down the line. Series C and M are of the highest scoring Bordeaux-style reds in South wines, recently rated in the 2024 Robert Parker Wine Advocate report as the highest scoring red wine from South Africa, ever. Today Vilafonté is South Africa’s most luxurious and collectable red wine brand.

Critics Ratings

‘Cabernet rules the blend here - hence C - with support from Merlot, Malbec and a splash of Cabernet Franc. This is a dense, serious, stylish, age worthy cuvée that deserves its cult following. Structured, spicy and winningly oaked, with a core of refreshing black fruit. 2019-26’ - Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2017, 96/100
