Producer/Region :

KWV is one of South Africa’s leading wine and spirit producers, with an impressive international reputation and history. We love how their dynamic winemaking team are bringing an innovative approach and modern wine styles. KWV has 72 growers from every region of the Western Cape so it has unrivalled access to all South Africa’s wine regions and grape varietals, from cool climate Walker Bay Sauvignon to hot and arid Swartland Shiraz. Its winemakers work closely with the vineyards and the results shine a light on South Africa’s amazing regional strengths.

KWV Roodeberg 1949 Red is an exclusive blend inspired by the 70th anniversary of a true South African iconic wine – Roodeberg. Created from a combination of classic and contemporary  grape varieties, this limited production wine balances tradition and innovation.

Grapes were harvested at optimal ripeness. After de-stem, they were cold soaked for two days to extract more fruit character and enhance colour. The wine was inoculated with specially selected yeast strains and fermented until dry. Free-run juice was racked to barrel where it underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine was then racked from the lees and returned to barrel for 18 months of maturation. The wine was matured in new French oak barrels for 18 months. Enjoy the wine now or cellar for five to eight years.
