The 2020 vintage of Seriously Old Dirt displays a brilliant, deep garnet-red colour. It delivers layers of fresh fruit on the nose; plum, black cherry, and blackberry along with warm notes of baking spice and vanilla pod. Subtle liquorice and seductive tobacco and hazelnut add a luxurious dimension. Flavours of ripe black cherry develop into lovely mineral notes, along with a lingering finish. Sumptuous and supple, with a line of acidity, giving elegance and balance.

About Seriously Old Dirt by Vilafonté

Vilafonté is the vision of the three founding partners – Mike Ratcliffe, who is now the sole owner of the company, together with Zelma Long and Dr. Phil Freese. Through the collaboration of these three leading industry figures, Vilafonté (which was founded in 1996) became the first American and South African joint wine-making venture, and these days is considered one of the most pioneering wineries in South Africa. Vilafonté’s wines are exclusively produced from grapes grown on its own vineyards which were planted in 1998. Here, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec grapes predominate. The 42-hectare estate sits on the bench of the Simonsberg Mountains with its unique vilafontes soils. It is from these unique soils that the winery and ‘Seriously Old Dirt’ derive their names.
