Dalla Cia, Giorgio 2018

(1 review)

Giorgio Dalla Cia was the pioneer of the Bordeaux blend in South Africa, during his time at Meerlust Estate. His son George now carries on the legacy, based out of Stellenbosch.

This is a left-bank Bordeaux style blend. Cabernet Sauvignon driven, with Merlot and a touch of Petit Verdot.

Expect notes of blueberries, cherries, violets, tobacco leaf and spicy cedar wood, with a generous finish. A bottle sure to age kindly.

  1. 90pts | Platter’s

    Weighty & serious Bordeaux blend, 70% cab with merlot & petit verdot in 2018, showing quintessential black-fruit aromas/flavours of cherry, currant & berry. 15% alcohol & 80% new oak deftly handled, as in 2015 (93 pts), though shade less freshness because of intense fruit-sweet finish. Also in 1.5L, as Teano. No 2016, 2017 untasted.
