“Eisen & Viljoen Bordeaux-style blends rate among the top cult wines in South Africa. Eisen & Viljoen 2011: intense flavours of ripe mulberries, soy, fynbos and hints of mint. Full mouthfeel, structured, balanced, and elegant. A juicy palate that leaves a long, velvety tannins finish. Drink now through to 2021. It is a rare find, to keep or enjoy on exceptional occasions!” ~ Tawanda Marume, Head Sommelier, Singita Game Reserve, Tanzania.
The Normandie Estate is a stunning property in the foothills of the Grootstein Mountains in Paarl, South Africa. First established in Franschhoek way back in 1693, by French settlers, then Mark Eisen, the internationally successful fashion designer from Cape Town, bought the property with his wife in 2008 and they teamed up with the awarded viticulturist and wine maker Johan Viljoen to provide us with amazing nectars. Only produced in tiny quantities each year to maintain the quality - try it while you can! - and only available from Wine Source, this wine shows a beautiful dark ruby colour. It’s intense and complex, with sweet spice and juicy black berry flavours, and just a hint of chocolate. This elegant and full-bodied wine will transport you right to the heart of one of South Africa's most beautiful wine lands. The Normandie Estate "Eisen & Viljoen" - named after the proprietor and the winemaker - is one of the fine wine world’s best kept secrets. It is difficult to understate how highly regarded and successful this wine is in South Africa. Next time you are in Cape Town, find it listed in their top 5 restaurants (including the award-winning Test Kitchen) and sold with passion by their most highly regarded sommeliers. We continue to spread the word about this superb estate and its gorgeous wines. The 2011 has intense flavours of juicy ripe mulberries, red and black cherries, soy, and hints of mint spice. It is a deliciously full and rich mouthful, tasty and layered, balanced and elegant with a finish of long, velvety tannins.
