Offer of Vilafonté 2019

Vilafonte 2019

Vilafonté’s Series C and Series M are among the most sought-after Bordeaux-style blends in the Cape, by collectors at home and abroad, and early vintages have confirmed their impressive cellaring potential.

The 2019s are marked by concentration with freshness and elegance, the fruits of a compact, overall low-yielding harvest following careful crop management and selection for optimum quality.

Place your order now and, when the wines arrive in the UK (in summer 2022), you can then opt either to store them with us or pay Duty & VAT and take delivery.

Vilafonté was recently voted Outstanding Producer of the Year at the 2021 International Wine & Spirit Competition, and is celebrating a 25-year milestone throughout 2022. The venture augured well from the start: the professional partnership of husband-and-wife team Phil Freese (viticulture) and Zelma Long (winemaking) from the US was complemented by the energy and marketing talent of Mike Ratcliffe, at the time joint owner of Warwick Estate in South Africa.

The 2019 wines were tasted and presented online by the Vilafonté team in December. Series C was released in the Cape last autumn, whilst Series M will only be released on the home market in May.

Both are offered here for the first time, beautifully presented in individually wrapped bottles with informative bottle collars. Volumes of these wines are limited, quality exceptional.
