Chateau Libertas Limited Edition



A special, limited-edition 90th anniversary memorial blend of South African favourite Chateau Libertas, released by Distell as a tribute to Duimpie (Francis Carr) Bayly, the late wine industry icon who played a major role in shaping the country’s wine reputation. He sadly passed away in 2021.  The famous Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend stayed close to Duimpie’s heart for nearly a lifetime. Once likening Chateau Libertas to “an old friend who never lets you down”, he could trace his association with the wine to the 1960s.

 This wine is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) and Cinsault (40%).  Wine of Origin: Stellenbosch

A step up in ambition, reverting to the classic Cabernet Cinsault combination of the famous 20th-century vintages, with more ripeness, extraction and small barrique influence than the standard edition. Red currants, eucalyptus, cedar, creme de cassis and oak spice. The palate is tight and improving, with grippy tannins and firm acidity. Keep.
