The latest release Uitkyk 10-Year-Old Grand Reserve potstill brandy is a beautiful rendition of a true estate brandy.

 

Winemaker Estelle Lourens says each cultivar selected from the Uitkyk estate, dating back to 1712, contributes to the flawless, flavourful and well-balanced end-product.

 

Autumn amber in colour the brandy is rich with lively fruit and spice, and laced with berries, vanilla, cloves and hints of tropical fruit. The finish is smooth, complex with lingering spice and earthy notes in the background.

 

The brandy is distilled, matured and bottled on the idyllic and historic Stellenbosch wine estate and made from the finest selection of Chenin blanc, Cinsaut and Clairette blanche grapes.   The base wine is double distilled in batches using 1800 litre Savalle potstills imported from France in the late 1940s. The smaller pots and double distillation contributes to a rich, flawless and flavourful spirit.

 

The spirit from each cultivar was matured separately first for 10 months in new Limousin French Oak barrels before spending the remaining 10 year period in third-fill Limousin French Oak. The final blend spent an eight months marrying period before bottling, resulting in an elegant, soft and well-balanced brandy.

 

The Uitkyk 10-Year-Old Grand Reserve is available from the estate, fine wine outlets and online from www.vinoteque.co.za and retails for about R495.
