Description

Stellenbosch, South Africa

Audacia Codebreaker is a bold red blend from the Stellenbosch wine region of South Africa. Audacia is a 32-hectare wine farm in a very special area of South Africa's prime vine growing and winemaking region, Stellenbosch. It's situated in what is known as 'The Golden Triangle' of Stellenbosch, a unique patch of land at the foot of the Helderberg Mountain. It's special because this is where some of South Africa's best red wines, particularly Shiraz, are grown and made. It's for this reason - and the fact that its vineyards are exclusively planted to red grape varieties – that Audacia has dubbed itself “The Red Wine Boutique Winery.”

Audacia Codebreaker is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot. No sulphur added; naturally preserved with antioxidant honeybush/rooibos. The vines are between 22 and 24 years old and planted on a south-facing slope in deep alluvial soils. Natural nutrients are applied to the vineyards. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for 11 months, 33% new oak. The wine is violet red in color. Earthiness greets the nose with intense dark berries and hints of licorice. The wine has a medium body with a soft consistency and an elegant tannin structure. Black fruit is dominant on the palate with hints of dry spices that linger on.

On the nose, fresh mint and black currant aromas with vanilla undertones. The tannins are young, but elegant and well balanced on the palate with mint flavors and aromas. The wine was aged in French oak staves for 12 months. On the finish, it is long and velvety.

Enjoy Audacia Codebreaker with veal chops, steak, roasted vegetables, and aged cheeses.
