Timeless is a new wine from Stellenrust, made with Cabernet Sauvignon and 52% Merlot and Cabernet Franc from Helderberg and Bottelary. Showcasing the quality of the e2017 vintage, it’s fresh, focused and tight, showing fresh mint and dried herb notes, stylish 30% new oak and a core of cassis and black cherry fruit. 2022-27.

Winemaker Notes

Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc

In winemaking, emphasis often only falls on chemistry, technique, passion and vineyards. So often the most important element of all is neglected: time. The Timeless is made in honour of this one element intrinsic to the success of any wine.

This wine offers a menthol fresh nose with the palate enriched with dark berries, cassis, some mint chocolate and also a lingering finish with well balanced tannins concentrating on the mid-palate.
