SIXTY40 SWEET RED BLEND

WINEMAKING


When making wines for the Sixty40 Sweet Red, the aim is to introduce an element of softness and accessibility to the wines.  Cool, slow fermentation is essential to extract fruit flavours from the grapes, resulting in layers of clean fresh fruit and soft, ripe tannins.

After fermentation, the wine was left on the skins for one week, to ensure a softening of compounds, leading to an elegant smoothness on the palate.

 

TASTING NOTE


This easy-drinking sweet red blend, consisting of Pinotage and Shiraz shows ripe red berry and strawberry flavours, with a light-bodied ripe fruitiness on the palate. Delicious with casual meals and party snacks. This light-bodied wine was made in a low alcohol sweet style for early enjoyment
