Buitenverwachting Meifort 2018
By Christian Eedes, 20 September 2021
The Meifort 2018 from Constantia property Buitenverwachting punches above its weight. A blend of 39% Cabernet Franc, 21% Petit Verdot, 21% Malbec and 19% Merlot, it was matured for 24 months in older oak. The nose shows red and black berries, hints of crushed leaves and fresh herbs plus pencil shavings while the palate is medium bodied, well balanced and refined – not massively fruity, lovely freshness and a nicely dry finish. One for the classicists out there. Price: R130 a bottle.
CE’s rating: 92/100.
