The 2005 is very similar in its appearance to the 2003, but offers a slightly rounder mouthfeel with almost salty tannins. Delicious now, it should continue to drink well for another 3 years – and beyond if you have the patience.

'Ripe, meaty merlot tones on 05 (37% Merlot with 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Cabernet Franc) but big tannins, moderate substance suggest best opened in next 2-3 yrs. 3 years in used French oak.' – Platter’s Guide, 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)

Producer information 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 their best.
