Description

Deep ruby in colour. Aromas of red cherries and dark fruit give way to a light oak spice. Gentle and smooth upon entry, the palate is medium to full-bodied with well-structured tannins. The wine is fresh and vibrant concluding with a lengthy finish. The perfect accompaniment to most red meat dishes as well as roasted beef and confit duck.

More Information

Anwilka Petit Freres

Petit Frère is the second wine, and little brother, from renowned Stellenbosch property Anwilka, which merged with Klein Constantia Estate in mid-2012. The name is a tribute to Anwilka’s French heritage owed to co-owners Hubert de Boüard and Bruno Prats, both of whom are now shareholders in Klein Constantia and Anwilka. Under their expert guidance, Anwilka is celebrated both locally and internationally for the consistent, superior quality wines it produces.
The Producer: Anwilka
Anwilka Vineyards is located just 7 kilometres from the ocean in Stellenbosch’s prime Helderberg region. The property was purchased in the late 1990s and extensive replanting of 40ha of vineyards comprising primarily cabernet sauvignon, shiraz and some merlot followed. The then owners, Lowell Jooste (the former co-owner of Klein Constantia) along with internationally well known Bordeaux wine personalities Hubert de Boüard (co-owner of Chateau Angélus in Saint Emilion) and Bruno Prats (former owner of Chateau Cos d’Estournel in Saint- Estèphe) released the eponymous maiden vintage blend of Syrah-Cabernet in 2005. Anwilka has since established a worldwide reputation for this red blend which has been described by Robert Parker as “the finest red wine I have ever had from South Africa”. Stellenbosch is recognized as the Cape’s premium red wine producing district. The significant maritime influence in the Helderberg region of Stellenbosch enables exceptional fruit quality. The matching of grape varieties to specific sites was carefully considered. Soils are of moderate potential, allowing low vine vigour and consistently healthy vines. A gentle slope assisting drainage during the winter rains. Minimal irrigation is used, and good water retention capacity avoids excessive hydric stress.
