Joubert Tradauw R62 Blend

Joubert Tradauw R62 Blend is a beautiful natural Bordeaux blend aged in French oak for 20 months.  Meyer Joubert normally keeps the blend in this wine a closely guarded secret  as it changes each vintage, but he has been open this year that it is Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Merlot (36%) and Cabernet Franc (14%), Great wine, very natural in style and low in additives. Highly recommended.

3.5 Stars Platter 2017

But this is wildly off the mark. I'd rate this wine at least 4 Stars if not 4.5. The Platter Guide has lost some accuracy due to having 17 different evaluaters with often contradicting different personal tastes. You can get a wildly different rating depending who actually evaluates the wine!

This vintage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Merlot (36%) and Cabernet Franc (14%), fermented with their own natural yeasts. Hand plunged several times a day. Aged in French oak for 20 months, 30% new, 30% 3rd fill. 40% 4th fill.

Joubert Tradauw's tasting notes say:

"The cultivars that make up this classic blend (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc) were matured separately using only the best barrels. A complex note gives away to underlying tones of raspberries, blackberries and red fruit, followed by a lingering herbal finish. Drink now through 2026.

Again excllent wine - very French in style which is unusual for a South African Bordeaux blend.. Very good wine indeed!

Enjoy with beef Wellington or slow roasted shoulder of lamb or lamb knuckle on a fresh tomato and herb polenta."
