Petit Frère is the second wine, and little brother, from renowned Stellenbosch property Anwilka, which merged with Klein Constantia Estate in mid-2012. The name is a tribute to Anwilka’s French heritage owed to co-owners Hubert de Boüard and Bruno Prats, both of whom are now shareholders in Klein Constantia and Anwilka. Under their expert guidance, Anwilka is celebrated both locally and internationally for the consistent, superior quality wines it produces.

Conditions leading up to the growing season were favourable, leading to an even and consistent berry growth. The hot and dry conditions meant smaller berries with good concentration. This is the first vintage to receive the newly planted Malbec.

Matured in combination of 20% new French Oak 400 litre barrels and stainless steel.

The grapes were hand picked in small crates in the early hours of the morning, ensuring cool grapes arrived in the cellar. Sorting happened both before and after destemming. Alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel tronconic tanks. Gentle punch downs by hand, pump-overs and ten days of post fermentation maceration enable a soft extraction of colour and tannins.

Food pairing

The perfect accompaniment to most red meat dishes as well as roasted lamb and beef brisket.
