MolenVliet’s maiden vintage – A product of an exceptional harvest, consisting of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon MolenVliet Proprietor’s Selection 2005 is a rich, opaque-plum, with a red rim.A nose of pure fruit, with great depth, hints of plum, fennel and lead pencil show off the purity of aroma, with a little dark chocolate thrown in for good measure.

The wine is only now hitting its peak, with firm, yet rounded tannins and a lovely mouth feel develops a palate and leaves with a wonderfully satisfying mélange of fruit and subtle oak flavours. Good for at least another 5 years.
