Yonder Hill Wines Inanda 2013 – Place of Beauty

Distributed by Yolandi de Wet PR On behalf of Yonder Hill Wines

Situated 15 km from Stellenbosch along the picturesque Route 44, framed against the slopes of the Helderberg lies Yonder Hill Wines. Here, 6 hectares of vineyards are annually crafted into top wines – Inanda 2013 being no exception.

Inanda 2013
Inanda – meaning Place of Beauty in Zulu, is a 47%Cabernet Franc, 44%Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot en 3% Petit Verdot blend.  The wine has a complex nose, with a mixture of roasted coffee beans and dark chocolate aromas expertly complemented by vibrant red fruits. Inanda has an elegant, well balanced structure that can be drank now or cellared for 4 to 6 years. It has been crowned with a silver Veritas award as well as a 3.5 star Platter. At a mere R90.00 per bottle, this beauty is a must along any fire place this winter.

The winemaking process
The berries of the four cultivars ripen at different stages of the harvest.  Each cultivar is therefore harvested and fermented separately in stainless steel tanks.  After blending and secondary fermentation (malolactic fermentation) the blend is matured for 13 months in 225l French oak barrels.

In the vineyard
The vineyards are five years old and planted along the northern slopes of the farm.  The vines are trained onto a five-wire trellis system to maximise exposure to the sunlight and sea breeze from False Bay.  The use of minimal handling and insecticides shows the approach towards enviro-friendly farming methods.
