The Retro Red from Rianie Strydom is a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cinsault, 9% Merlot and around 3000 bottles of this version were made. All three varieties were harvested by hand and fermented separately. Pumping and punching twice a day ensured a gentle extraction of tannins and flavors. The wines finished malo-lactic fermentation in stainless steel before aging in 3rd year oak barrels for 12 months. All vineyards are planted on a south-west facing slope with 15-20% clay and slate. The region is relatively cool and this makes the Strydom wines fresh and crisp.

In the glass, the Retro has a beautiful dark red color with a nose of fresh red and dark fruit (blackberry, blackcurrant), spices and a little vanilla. This medium bodied wine is juicy with very mild tannins and a hint of pepper in the aftertaste. This is an excellent drink wine and delicious with cubes of mature cheese, meatball, pasta with meat sauce, fried steak.
