This extraordinary wine was created through the collaboration between Meerendal’s Cellar Master Liza Goodwin and Italian Maestro Dr. Stefano Contini. “The aim when INTENSIO was produced was to realise in the finished wine the intensity of colour, flavour and tannins present in the dried grapes so typical of the red wines from the Veneto region, in Italy. Yet in every way so different because of its South African heritage – this wine with all its intricate layers personifies the vast richness, culture and beauty that is South Africa.” (Liza Goodwin, Meerendal Cellar Master) This wine shows a vibrancy and freshness although it is very powerful and full bodied. The intense tannins and extract seamlessly integrate with the delicate fruit. The oak is not too overt, although it spent 15 months in barrels.
