L'ORMARINS CAPE VINTAGE RESERVE 2020

Deep ruby black colour, inky and dense. Rich fruitcakes aromas, redolent of prunes, dates, raisins, spice, nuts and even a touch of brandied Christmas pudding. The palate picks up where the nose leaves off – spicy, rich stewed rune, raisin and nutty flavours. Sweetness is to be expected with this style of fortified wine but it’s beautifully restrained and balanced with the spirit fortification, maintaining a superb equilibrium throughout. There is a lovely tannic dryness and grip, so reminiscent of typical Portuguese Port. Structured, poised and precise, with everything in harmony. Lovely lingering tail.

Bold plum, hedgerow fruit with a tempting dried lavender perfume on the nose. The wine confidently stalks onto the palate. Sleek yet succulent with rich spicy forest floor and the same hedgerow notes from the nose. A brush of herbs and fynbos adds interest. The wine is structured with a firm core of oak which is supportive rather than prominent or overbearing. Beautifully elegant and poised with lovely harmony all the way to its lingering and smart finish. Drinking well now, it will reward additional patience and careful cellaring.

Appealing stonefruit aromas with a gentle lemon zest edge. The palate is appropriately fruity – with more nectarine, apricot, quince and touch of ripe honeyed sweetness to balance the vibrant, fresh acidity. Succulent and refreshing with a tasty citrus pith note that lends texture. Long finish.

Instant charm of fruitcake and Christmas pudding; black fruits, spice galore and light brush of herbs on the nose. Gently rounded and supple upon entry, further adds to its attraction. The spicy plum, black berries and cherry of the nose are echoed on the palate too. Delicious and succulent but structured too with a good backbone. Silky smooth in texture, it has a gentle satiny grip with a long, rewarding tail.
