No. 6 - 2006
In creating the No.6 the aim was to make a wine that best expresses the quality and purity of the fruit that Welbedacht Wine Estate, its terrior and cellar has to offer. Small parcels from a variety of sites on the farm were hand selected and individually vinified in our cellar to allow the varietal charteristics of each cultivar to fully develop. After 18months maturation in 2nd fill French oak barrels the blend was assembled and returned to barrel for a further 9months to marry all flavours. The final blend consists of the following 6 varieties; Syrah Petit Verdot Malbec Mourvedre Pinotage and Viognier. Only 12 barrels of the 2006 vintage were made as a testament to our terrior and meticulous attention to detail.
This opulent Rhône style blend is Syrah based with splashes of Mourvèdre, Cinsaut, Grenache, Pinotage and Viognier.The nose is generous with floral notes and aromas of pepper, meat, cranberry and mango. The tannins are tight but seamless, an exhilarating mouthfull of exotic spice and medley of freshly picked berries.
