Platter * * * * – 2014 harmonious equal cab/cab f & merlot, 10% petit verdot. Classic dark berry, cigarbox aromas introduce sweet-fruited flavours held by fine, polished tannins. Well absorbs 80% new French oak.
It is a distinctive style with all the hallmarks of the Jonkershoek Valley and known for its distinctive balance of elegance and fruit power. Medium intense ruby red colour. Restraint aroma but deep, complex perfumes of black and red berry fruit. Cedary aromas, so typical of a Jonkershoek wine. The palate is smooth and plush followed by fine, but dense tannins. A ripe, soft tannin vintage, with savoury expression.
