A three bottle selection of the Steenberg Fleet Range wines beautifully presented in a gift box. The gift set consists of:
1 bottle Steenberg Ruby Rosé 2018
1 bottle Steenberg Sphynx Chardonnay 2017
1 bottle Steenberg Stately Cabernet Sauvignon / Shiraz 2016
2017 Steenberg Sphynx Chardonnay:
The 2017 Sphynx Chardonnay displays complex aromas of nectarine, ripe yellow apple, fresh quince, citrus blossom and light degrees of toastiness on the nose. Subtle oak spice is carried through from the nose to the palate. It is complemented by a silky, elegant structure, which in turn is tempered by a zesty acidity and chalky minerality.
The wine is ready to enjoy now, but will reward patience and age gracefully for the next 2- 5 years.
2016 Steenberg Stately Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz:
Stately is a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon and 37% Shiraz. The wine’s colour is deep black-red with a lighter, garnet red on the rim. The nose entices with ripe blackberries, blackcurrants, dried black olives, ripe mulberries, leather, freshly ground black pepper and star anise. Liquorice, camphor and a distinct earthiness emerges upon the second swirl. This is a dense and opulent wine, showing remarkable silky texture and depth as well as an elegant tannin structure. Spice, black fruit, floral and earthy notes linger on the palate long after the last sip.
This blend is showing beautifully now, and will reward cellaring for up to 7 years.
2018 Steenberg Ruby Rosé:
This pale, petal pink dry Rosé delivers subtle fragrances of boysenberry jelly, watermelon sorbet, candy apples, red liquorice candy, ripe sweet melon and fresh herbs on the nose. The wine is full and creamy, yet fresh on the palate and entices further with notes of juicy raspberry, wild strawberry, spiced stone fruit and a zesty finish. This wine is light and flirty, yet shows great depth and lingers considerably on the palate.
The perfect drink for all happy occasions.
