Beschreibung
Rotwein Ondine Cabernet Franc by Ormonde Private Cellar Südafrika 14 Vol.%

Der südafrikanische Rotwein Ondine wird von Ormonde Private Cellar produziert und besteht aus 100% handgelesenen Cabernet Franc-Weintrauben im südafrikanischen Weinanbaugebiet Darling.

Nach der 12-tägigen Mazeration (Extraktion der Farb-, Aroma- und Gerbstoffe aus den Traubenhäuten) und der Fermentation in Edelstahltanks, wurde der südafrikanische Rotwein Ondine Cabernet Franc von Ormonde Private Cellar in neuen (30%) und gebrauchten (70%) französischen Eichen Weinfässer - French Oak Barriques - für 12 Monate ausgebaut.

Der Name beschreibt das Geschmackserlebnis, das dieser Tropfen bietet, sehr gut. Intensiv rot leuchtet der südafrikanische Rotwein Ondine Cabernet Franc im Glas, im Bukett viel Frucht und Würze. Komplexe Aromen von Pflaumen, Kirschen und Erdbeeren im Zusammenspiel mit einer würzigen Pfeffernote bestimmen das Bukett. Am Gaumen viel gedörrte Frucht, dazu filigrane Tannine, die zu einem warmen und langen Abgang überleiten.

WINEMAKERS NOTES Hennie Huskisson:
Ondine Cabernet Franc - Make the most of this wine’s bouquet of herbs and black pepper in a dish such as the typical French Coq au vin – chicken portions slowly simmered in good red wine with baby onions, mushrooms, bacon and fresh herbs like thyme, origanum and Italian parsley. Serve it with crusty bread to mop up the sauce. Alternatively, prepare cubed leg of lamb or the Italian Osso bucco, made with veal shank, in a similar way.

Cabernet franc is often the lesser partner in great blends. Although it is not as well known in South Africa, Cabernet franc wine from our estate has proven to be distinct in aromas and elegant in style. This Ondine Cabernet Franc wine is produced to showcase the unique character.

This Ondine Cabernet Franc wine has an intense bouquet of herbs, pepper and berries reflecting origin and terroir of the Darling appellation. Well integrated ripe tannins allow for a well constructed palate. This Ondine Cabernet Franc shows berries and herbs flavours with a subtle toast and oak character on the nose. Complemented by dark berry fruit and cinnamon character on the palate. Soft ripe tannin structure with a balanced palate. Aged for 12 months in French oak. 30% new oak.

Jahres-Weinproduktion vom Weingut Ormonde Private Cellar aus Südafrika: über 1/2 Million Weinflaschen.

Zur Geschichte des südafrikanischen Weinguts Ormonde Private Cellar:
Angefangen hat alles mit den Grossvätern WILLIAM VERNON BASSON, 1909 auf der historischen Farm OUDEPOST bei Darling geboren, und THEODORE EKSTEEN, 1909 in Franschhoek als Hugenotten-Nachfahre geboren. Sohn NICO BASSON kam 1970 auf die Farm in Darling zurück und fing an Pferde zu züchten und nebenbei Weinreben zu pflanzen, lange bevor die Region als Weinkulturland entdeckt wurde. Kurze Zeit später konnte er die Ormonde Winefarm sein eigen nennen.

2006 wurde die neue 1000-Tonnen Weinkellerei der Basson Familie feierlich eröffnet. Damals war noch Winemaker MICHIEL DU TOIT im Weinkeller verantwortlich. Heute ist Sohn THEO BASSON auch Besitzer von einer weiteren Farm in der Gegend und managet noch zwei weitere Farmen.

Ormonde Private Cellar - Basson Family - Darling South Africa:
Ormonde Private Cellar is situated on the West Coast of South Africa, where the rugged Darling hills roll and fall along the contours of a ancient granite intrusion. These molten rocks, forced from the earth to 300m above sea level, guard the Atlantic Ocean while banks of fog roll to the foot of the hills, blessing the vineyard with coolness and moisture. Our soil composition varies between deep homogeneous soils, rich in iron and organic matter and harsh glenrosa forms, derived from the granite. These deep soils provide the ideal cradle for our vines. The Cape Floral Kingdom is the richest reservoir of plant species in the world, comprising 9 600 species. The Darling wine region is home to 600 of these species flowering from September each year. Gladiolus Carinatus, commonly known as bloupypie, thrives on our terrior and symbolises the unique character and quality of our wines.

THE ORMONDE RANGE
The principle behind our flagship wine, Ormonde, is simple. Each year it must represent the finest wines from the best grapes we select. The vineyard block selection may alter slightly with each vintage, but the philosophy behind the wines never changes. Generation´s-old French traditions of open fermentation, plunging, racking, barrel ageing and blending are dutifully used to create these masterpieces.

THE ONDINE RANGE
The official wine of the South African Ballet Theatre. Ormonde Private Cellar also produces our Ondine range which showcases an array of wines with which to entice your pallet. Venturing into new cultivars, trying new wine making techniques and ideas pollinated from world travel. Each wine has a unique story to tell.

THE ALEXANDERFONTEIN RANGE
Ormonde Private Cellar produces the Alexanderfontein range of wines that are wonderfully aromatic and accessible on the palate, reflecting the terrior of the region in cultivar, character and style. Unmistakably fresh, well-balanced and elegantly aromatic to make any occasion special. These wines are crafted for unpretentious pleasure and enjoyment of the simpler aspects of life.

THE VINEYARDS
The uniqueness of the Darling Hills terroir is undisputed. Pockets of eroded granite type soils are selected as close as five kilometers from the cold Atlantic Ocean, at altitudes between one hundred and fifty and three hundred meters above sea level. Soil preparation is thorough, and maximum root development for nourishment and optimum water usage of the vines is essential. We do not irrigate and therefore the clay content of the deep red soil is such, that it retains the moisture from the winter rains through to the dry summer months until harvest time in February. A warmer micro climate prevails around the berries of bush vines. This initiates a shorter ripening period, resulting in a fruitier juice. Most of our vines are trellised and this allows the afternoon breeze to move beneath the vines, cooling them down, bringing a balanced natural acidity and freshness to our wines. We keep viticulture practices simple and with continuous consultation, training and evaluation exercises involving all levels of our workforce, we maintain our pursuit of quality every day of the year.

A high level of skill involving subjective decision making during winter pruning ensures spacing of bearers and manipulation of desired crop levels. Vineyard practices peak during the growing season from September when health and canopy management is a very busy and important period. All undesirable growth is removed by means of suckering; leaves are removed to allow for better light penetration which influences ripening of fruit and fertility for future crops. Shoots need to be positioned upright with constant trimming of growth points in order to ensure controlled vegetative development. These are thus just some of the practices.

THE HISTORY OF OUR FAMILY
The Basson family roots penetrate deep into the history of Darling. Being of a big family, grandfather Vernon Basson settled on a farm in Philadelphia, a town close to Darling. Our father, Nico, was an avid animal lover and returned to Darling in 1970 when he bought the farm to start a highly acclaimed dairy stud. With great perseverance, foresight and hard work, he set about planting vineyards on his farm, long before the area became the permier wine producing area that it is today. Today the future generation of Bassons are playing in the vineyard, learning the craft from a young age.

Theodore Eksteen was born in 1909, in Franschhoek as a Huguenot descendant. He farmed in the heart of the winelands of Paarl and was an original garagiste – making port, until his death in 1988. This dedicated farmer was the grandfather and patriarch to his descendants who own Ormonde Cellars in Darling. He will forever be remembered for his lust for life, his love of nature and angling. The Basson and Eksteen families celebrated his 100th birthday in August 2009 with the Theodore Eksteen 2007 vintage.

William Vernon Basson was born on 28 November 1909 on the historic farm Oudepost in the Darling district. He farmed in the Philadelphia district, and was recognised as one of the finest agriculturists and horsemen in the area. He was also a great rugby enthusiast; he died on 23 December 1961. The Vernon Basson wine is dedicated to our founding principal and grandfather who lived by the creed, "Mediocrity is never an option".

THE HISTORY OF DARLING
At the start of the 18th century some 29 farmers occupied farms in the Darling area. Langfontein was one of these farms. Years later, the Darling Village Trustees Board succeeded in buying the Langfontein farm on 12 February 1853 for 50 000 guilder or 1 250 pounds. It was on this farmland where the village and church were founded. Darling was named after Charles Henry Darling who came to the Cape as Lieutenant Governor in 1851. Travellers through Darling were always overwhelmed by the tapestry of flowers covering the fields surrounding Darling during springtime. James Backhouse wrote in 1840, “ There are no wild flowers like those at Darling”. In 1915 Mrs Suzanne Malan, the wife of the local minister and Mr Frederick Duckitt of Waylands founded the Darling Wildflower Society and the renowned annual Darling Wildflower Show has been held virtually every year since its inception in 1917.
