"Blending the best with the best"

HERMANUS WINE ROUTE CHARITY

Thanks to the Hermanus Wine Route, the R320 has become one of the most important roads on the South African tourist landscape. And now there is a magnificent blend celebrating the generosity of the surrounding terroir.

Introducing the Hermanus Wine Route R320 blend – a limited release wine aimed at the social upliftment of the local community by providing educational assistance to learners in the area.  Co-sponsored by Curro Private Schools (Hermanus) and the Hermanus Agrimark, the choice components for this impressive charity blend were donated by leading producers along the R320:  

  • Southern Right,
  • Bouchard Finlayson,
  • La Vierge,
  • Newton Johnson,
  • Sumaridge,
  • Spookfontein,
  • Ataraxia,
  • Creation,
  • Mount Babylon
  • Domaine des Dieux,
  • Whalehaven and
  • Hermanuspietersfontein. 

Varietals:

73% Syrah, 9% Malbec, 9% Pinotage and 9% Merlot.

Colour:

Dense magenta with an attractive cerise edge.

Nose:

Elegant, spicy white pepper contributes to a dark fruit profile of ripe plum and crushed berries. Interesting notes of rosemary and biltong add to the appeal.

Palate:

Generous and broadly structured, with the aromas repeated on the palate. A soft grip of fine tannins adds complexity and good length – resulting in a journey as memorable as the R320! 

Additional sponsors include: Consol, Diam, Columbit, Collotype Labels, Quality Bottling Services, Mac Art Packaging and African Stereos – all assisted by Brimstone Design and Smart Octopus.
