Fable Mountain Vineyards Belle Flower 2014
By Christian Eedes, 16 February 2016
The Belle Flower 2014 from Tulbagh cellar Fable Mountain Vineyards, with the pink colour of the wine mirroring the winelands sunset depicted on the label, is a finalist in this year’s Wine Label Design Awards (vote for your favourite here) but what of the wine inside the bottle?
W.O. Swartland, it’s a blend of 40% Grenache, 32% Syrah and 28% Mourvèdre and was aged for 12 months in concrete egg. The nose shows rose geranium and red berries plus a little spice and earth. It shows pure fruit and bright acidity. Not without palate weight given an alcohol of only 12% alcohol and about as serious as rosé gets. Price: R140 a bottle.
