Lot 203

Vriesenhof
Kallista, 2005
6 (1 x 6) 1500ml
Purchased in December 1980 by the Coetzee family, Vriesenhof is situated at the base of the Stellenbosch Mountain and is often regarded as the best-kept secret on the Stellenbosch wine route. Legendary winemaker and Springbok Jan ‘Boland’ Coetzee is synonymous with the property and gained valuable experience in Burgundy before becoming one of SA’s top Pinot Noir producers. Produced in a rich, powerful style, the classic wines require age to show they best.

'Ripe, meaty merlot tones on 05 (37% with 36% cab, 27% cab f) but big tannins, moderate substance suggest best opened in next 2-3 yrs. 3 years in used French oak.' – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2011, 4*

'Displaying a wonderful tension and minerality with excellent poise and structure, the Kallista 2005 is possible the finest vintage I have tasted. Tasted alongside to a top flight Chateau Palmer, it held its own with length and elegance. It will age well for a couple decades.' - Roland Peens 95/100 (2018)
