Product description

We got very lucky in 2014. We were waiting for just the right moment to pick some of our best Cabernet blocks and watching the weather obsessively. Late on a Friday afternoon the following week’s forecast changed with a small amount of rain predicted for that Monday and Tuesday. After a lot of hand-wringing and no small amount of arguing with staff, we decided to organize a picking team for the weekend rather than take a chance. We finished picking early on the Sunday afternoon, just as rains started. It turned out to be 3 days of heavy rain. The 2014s have shown well since early in their maturation: a soft, dark-fruited vintage that should have a lot of consumer appeal.

 

-Stark-Condé Wines is located in the picturesque Jonkershoek Valley in Stellenbosch. It is a dramatic valley with steep changes in vineyard elevation from 150 to 600 metres, making for a range of sites with distinct characteristics.
