Kolab Project ‘Ghost & The Darkness’ Red 2015
A collaboration with select winemakers, Kolab Project aims to unearth and present innovative and exciting wines that may otherwise not make it to market.
This red blend, made by a top winemaking couple in SA, is inspired by classic old blends of the Cape popular 50-60 years ago, wines that aged exceptionally well. It’s built on Cinsault (77%) with Cabernet Franc (15%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (8%), all grapes are from low-yield vineyards around the Cape, naturally fermented before ageing in barrel for 18 months. The inclusion of whole-bunch fermentation for a portion adds freshness and light fruit to a wine that is dry, fresh and layered with spice and bright red fruit flavours.
