Bodegas Benjamin de Rothschild & Vega Sicilia Macán 2015

R1,150.00 inc. VAT
"The current vintage of the first wine is the 2015 Macán, fermented in oak vats and matured in new French oak barrels for 12 months, followed by a further five months in oak vats and kept in bottle for almost three years before it's released. 2015 was a warm and dry year, and the wine feels riper when tasted next to the 2016 Macán Clásico, which comes from a very different year. The use of foudres helps to give the wine length and elegance—a good tool to fine-tune warmer vintages like this one. This is stylistically different from 2016, with darker fruit and an earthy touch. It's powerful, with structure and plenty of tannin, a dense wine, with concentration to get polished in bottle. 74,465 bottle, 2,563 magnums and some larger formats produced. It was bottled in May 2017." - Luis Gutiérrez, Wine Advocate

Bodegas Benjamin de Rothschild & Vega Sicilia Macán 2014

R960.01 inc. VAT
(raised in new and used French oak barrels for 15 months) Opaque ruby. A heady, exotically perfumed bouquet evokes ripe black and blue fruits, incense, candied licorice and mocha, and a smoky nuance builds in the glass. Sappy, densely packed boysenberry, cherry liqueur, cola and vanilla flavors show impressive energy and focus and a late jolt of florality. Distinctly rich yet vibrant and graceful in style. Finishes with impressive energy and velvety tannins that lend shape and gentle grip.
