Notes

You might have already heard that Miles Mossop will soon be leaving Tokara to focus on his own wines. A recent addition to his award-winning Miles Mossop Wines is the earlier drinking Introduction Red 2014 and Introduction Chenin Blanc 2016. As the Cape Winemakers Guild Chairman, Miles brings considerable skill to these wines which both offer astonishing value as well as a seriousness that belies their price. Simply put, these excellent wines over-deliver in spades. To encourage you to stock up, we’re offering free delivery on 6 bottles or more while stocks last!

The Introduction Red 2014, a Merlot-based Bordeaux red, is primarily sourced from Stellenbosch and has a welcoming, deeply fruited nose and a modern, approachable palate. It is fresh with great fruit purity and a serious structure.

Tasting Note:
The wine displays a deep dark garnet colour with a plum red rim. The nose is abundant in aromas of cassis, blackberries and mulberries underpinned with notes of cedar and black olives. There is a faint hint of eucalypt and mint.

The palate is full and rich with layers of dark berries, plums and ripe fresh prunes. The tannins are firm on the finish but give way to a beautiful elegant freshness.

Vinification:
This wine is a blend of 52% Merlot, 32% Petit Verdot and 16% Cabernet Sauvignon from vineyards around Stellenbosch.

The grapes are picked at a ripeness level to express freshness and the purity.Fermentation takes place in wooden open top fermenters without the inoculation of yeast and lasts for up to 3 weeks. After fermentation the wines are pressed to barrel for malolactic fermentation after which they are racked and returned to barrel for further maturation for up to 18 months. No new wood is used so as to retain the freshness and purity inherent in the grapes.

pH: 3.53 TA: 6.03 g/l RS: 3.1 g/l Alc: 14.0% by Vol
