About this Item

2000 Red
1 (1 x 1) 1500ml

Believed to be South Africa’s oldest red blend, Chateau Libertas was established by Dr William Charles Winshaw in 1932 to introduce a lightly wooded dry red blend. It has been produced every year since. A unique blend of Cinsaut, Cabernet Sauvignon and later Pinotage, vintages such as 1940, 57 and 61 are remarkably composed and revered today, especially in 750ml bottle.

Critics Ratings

‘2000 has savoury fruit with mocha tones under a shy, smoky plum nose; fairly dry powdery tannins; fennel and cigar box notes - from dash Shiraz, here with Cabernet Sauvignon (65%), Cinsaut and Merlot, and from partial oaking (Cabernet portion only, mix ages/sizes). Alcohol bigger than previous (nudging 14%) but subordinate.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2003
