Shiraz / Mourvèdre / Viognier Blend
If you love the expressive wines from the Rhône in France but want to see the sunset over the beautiful Swartland in South Africa, you will understand our intention with the Gentis SMV – a more seductive take on Cote Rotie. Besides the Gentis RED, the SMV is intentionally made as a more refined and elegant style of wine from the Swartland personality.
Shiraz, Mourvèdre, and Viognier are skilfully blended, and when it ripens simultaneously, it is co-fermented to emphasise our signature style. Although blended in small quantities, Swartland Viognier adds a distinctive perfume that marries beautifully paired with bold and aromatic dishes. The judicious use of French oak imparts subtle charry and smoky aromas, while the floral aromas from the Viognier persist with a chic, elegant character.
