Buitenverwachting’s Christine is a refined Bordeaux-style blend with rich, powerful red and black fruits, married with dark chocolate and tobacco. Grapes for this Bordeaux-inspired red from Buitenverwachting’s cool estate vineyards in Constantia, and the wine was aged for 24 months in second and third-fill French oak barrels, where it also underwent malolactic fermentation. An exquisite Bordeaux-like blend with rich red fruit characters reminiscent of ripe raspberry and blackcurrant, and undertones of dark chocolate and tobacco.
