Veenwouden
Classic, 1999
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Veenwouden is a Boutique Winery situated on the northern side of Paarl with sweeping views of the Klein Drakenstein Mountains. Once a family affair, Deon Van der Walt was the owner at the time,  Switzerland-based tenor, whilst brother Marcel was the winemaker and previously a professional golfer. The first vineyards being planted in 1989 and by 1993 they released their Bordeaux styled reds. These wines emerged from no-where to capture international attention and are some of the most consistent vintage wines found in SA. The Veenwouden wines are all in immaculate condition today and show a modernity that few SA wines achieved at the time. Truly special and extremely rare.

'Termed classic: it is. 99 follows big shoes of dramatic 98 (5*). More muscular than stablemate Merlot (due to powerful 52% cabernet sauvignon, with 38% merlot, 10% cab franc), demands more patience. Squid-ink black; oak char, perfumed red berries, fresh-ground coffee beans cajoled out of currently closed nose, palate riveting – gently layered cassis fruit, unobtrusive oak, ripe tannins and incisive 14% alc all warming up for the main act – another 4 yrs required for authoritative tannins to release sumptuous underlying fruit, will go 10 with ease. Impressive award haul includes Bordeaux International Challenge du Vin, Air France trophy. 80% new French oak, 20% 2nd fill. 2000 cases.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide (2002)
