MARKLEW CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2010

This Cab is great. It has just been chosen by South African Airways for the First Class Lounge. The 6th time in 7 yrs. Quite an accolade. I really rate this as a good Cabernet. Its full and fruity with dark Berries. Great balance of tannins and very smooth. The more I drink it the more I rate it. Could quite easily be sold for over Dkk 200. But then again – we´re Mat’s Vineyard– Mathew

Winemaker Duan Britz’s notes: Well toned muscularity, classic cassis/mulberry concentration with dry insistent tannins which yield to memorable finish. Can be enjoyed now but will improve with bottle age and can still be drunk 10 years from vintage

Climate/Terroir: Mediterranian.

Soil: Red Hutton

Vinification/Maturation: Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 was hand picked at optimum ripeness, sorted and vinified from a 19 year old bush vine block and an 11 year old trellised, dry land vineyard.The combination of these two vineyards gives great structure, complexity and depth to the wine.

Grapes get pumped and plunged numerous times during a long fermentation period for maximum extraction.  After fermentation, grapes were lightly pressed in a small traditional basket press. Oaking – 12 months in 40% new, 60% 2nd fill barrels. MLF done in barrels.  95% French, 5% American oak.

Chemical Analysis: Alcohol – 13.76 vol%; Res. Sugar – 2.4; Acidity – 6.4; pH – 3.72

MARKLEW CAPENSIS 2005

“The Capensis is a celebration of the Cape Floral kingdom with all its diverse beauty. This Cape blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz and Pinotage is smooth, fresh and elegant. Its nose and colour mirror the rich aromas and colours of the “fynbos” found in the surrounding mountains.” – Mathew

Winemaker Duan Britz’s notes: Fresh elegance, well balanced with plush velvety feel and classic dryness. Capensis 2004 can be enjoyed now but will definitely improve with bottle age.  Drink 2 -7 years from vintage.

Climate: Mediterranian.

Soil: Red hutton

Vinification/maturation: Capensis was made from the top selection of barrels of the 2004 vintage. The blend consists of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32.5%  Merlot, 12.5% Shiraz and 10% Pinotage. A selection of top dry land vineyard blocks ranging from 7 – 17 years old. Individual cultivars were oaked in 90% new wood and 10% second fill French and American oak barrels for 12 months.  The wine was then blended and returned to second fill French barrels for an additional 6 months to integrate the rich flavours, big structure and loads of fruit.

Chemical Analysis: Alcohol – 13.9 vol%; Res. Sugar – 2.00; Acidity – 5.90;  pH – 3.61

MARKLEW CHARDONNAY 2010 (sold out)

“When Haidee gave me the news that the Chardonnay 2009 had won a double gold at the annual Veritas awards I was not surprised. It’s rich straw colour conjures up images of hedonistic times. The aroma and palette follow through on this theme. If you’re looking to impress your mother in-law this will do the trick. But you have to be able to part with it first. Yummy.” – Mathew

Winemaker Kajo Maleks notes: Wonderfully rich and indulgent with hints of citrus and butterscotch. Chardonnay 2009 is drinking well now, but can be drunk for 2-4 years after vintage.

Climate/Terroir: Mediterranian. 12 year old vines facing South East.

Soil: Red Hutton

Vinification/Maturation: Picked and vinified from a selection of rows out of a top-performing dry land block of vineyard. Grapes were barrel fermented at a low temperature to ensure fruit flavours on both nose and palate. MLF  was 100% completed. 20% New French barrels, 80% 2nd and 3rd fill French barrels. Barrels were stirred once a week to add a buttery full bodied complexity.

Chemical Analysis: Alcohol -14,21%;  pH – 3,60; Acidity – 5.8; Res. Sugar – 1,58

MARKLEW PINOTAGE 2010

“How many Danes have heard of Pinotage? It was bred in South Africa in 1925 by the first viticultural professor in Stellenbosch, Abraham Perold. A cross between Pinot noir and Cinsaut. Deep red colour and great aromas and flavours. This great wine has had the 2008 vintage scooped up by South African Airways for their first class lounge. A huge honour for Marklew, but not so good for us. But don’t worry – I know where the back door to the winery is. Enjoy the 2007 while you can – I cant wait to showcase this awesome South African wine to Denmark.” – Mathew

Winemaker Duan Britz’s notes

Opulent ripe dark fruit with firm friendly tannins. The Pinotage 2007 can be enjoyed now but will definitely improve with bottle age (up until 10 years from vintage).

Soil: Red Hutton.

Vinification/Maturation: Our Pinotage 2007 was hand picked at optimum ripeness, sorted and vinified from 10 year old dry land  bush vineyards.

A shorter fermentation and maceration period than other reds with extra plunging to enhance colour and fruit flavours. Oaked for 18 months in a selection of 60% new, 40% 2nd fill French barrels.  MLF completed in barrel.

Chemical Analysis: Alcohol – 14.0 vol%; Res. Sugar – 2.9; Acidity – 6.0; pH – 3.83
