Tasting Notes

Fermented on the skins for 7 days with three aerations to unleash inherent colours and flavours. Once dry, pressing took place and the young wine was placed onto French oak staves before malolactic fermentation. A further 3 months on the wood captures thorough integration and complexity. Good ruby colour intensity with generous ripe plum and spice on the nose. A silky smooth lush entry with pleasing soft ripe fruit flavours and well incorporated oak notes. An honest red wine that is ready to drink now or within a year or two. Don't wait too long. Enjoy slightly chilled with roast lamb or grilled pork chops. Also great with tomato based Italian food, pizza or full-flavoured hard cheese. A good social sipping red at cocktail parties or barbeques.

The story of Tall Horse begins way back in 1824 when the Sultan of Egypt presented the King of France with a giraffe as a diplomatic gift. The giraffe was sent up the Nile by boat and shipped across the Mediterranean where it landed at the port of Marseilles. Its journey continued as it was walked across the length of France until it eventually reached its destination in Paris._x000D_ Tall Horse believes that there are many similarities between the giraffe that travelled from Egypt to Paris and their wines that have come to share its name. Tall Horse wines come all the way from South Africa with grapes grown in vineyards with near perfect conditions in the Western Cape winelands.
