There is a new stunner in the line-up of Brampton wines, and it is sure to make a lasting impression on the vino-savvy visitors of Brampton Wine Studio, the brand’s home located in the heart of SA’s original wine hub, Stellenbosch.

Roxton is a three-way blend of Petit Verdot, Shiraz and Malbec. The wine takes its name from a magnificent pedigreed bull imported from the UK in the 1950s. Living up to the bloodline of its namesake, the grapes used to prepare the Roxton are sourced from specially selected premium vineyard sites which allow the different varietal components to shine and show off their unique qualities. The Petit Verdot brings a muscular structure to the wine, the Shiraz a depth of flavour on the mid-palate while the Malbec adds fresh and juicy berry and black cherry fruit to the mix.

Roxton, like the other wines in the Brampton stable, is an expression of individuality and creativity, and the distinctive new 2014 vintage follows on the heels of the supremely popular 2013 maiden release. While drinking seamlessly at the moment, it is also a great collector’s wine as it promises even more intrigue with greater integration of its layers over the next ten years. Roxton is now available along with other new vintage wines at the Brampton Wine Studio, where you’ll find more than great wine on the menu.
