Only 40 barrels of this special wine were produced. Robert Parker: 'This is a simply delicious wine that will put a smile on your face.' An iconic estate, VilafontÃ© will only ever produce two wines. In the formative years, Zelma Long noticed that the vineyard was producing two distinctive styles. Both styles were of the highest quality, not one of them better than the other, but distinctive nonetheless.
One portion of the vineyard produced a soft, rounded, fleshy and fruit driven style. The other side of our vineyard produced a bolder, more powerful and structured style. It was this realisation that lead to the emergence of Series M and Series C. Series C takes its name from the Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc which predominantly defines the style of this wine. The Series C style is that of a firm, powerful and concentrated wine, rich in fruit at release and blended for long aging.
The Series C exudes aromas of blackcurrants, blackberries and liquorice. Its secondary characters suggest a mineral presence of graphite and crushed rock, integrated with French oak. The palate shows, on entry and through its length, very fine grained tannins, significant fruit weight and intensity, and great length.
