Moordenaarskloof Tinta Barocca 2020, Dornier, Stellenbosch
Broodingly dark in colour and delectably full bodied. Raspberry, mulberry and aromatic spices jump out of the glass. Fine grained, grippy, tannins are in perfect harmony with the abundance of concentrated fruit.
Dornier is a family owned winery situated in the ‘Golden Triangle’ of the famous Upper Blaauwklippen Valley – in the fine company of De Trafford, Waterford and Keermont. The property produces premium quality wines, with minimal intervention in the winery, that are expressive of the terroir.
The grapes are harvested by hand in the cool mornings of late February. The bunches are destalked and the fermentation takes place in temperature controlled open top fermenters with punch downs four times a day. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel and the wine is aged in barrel for a total of 17 months.
