Winemaker's Notes

The grapes were harvested from vineyards in the Paarl, Perdeberg, Piekenierskloof and Malmesbury regions. The majority of grapes are sourced from dry farmed old bush vines. These vineyards provide low yields, resulting in wine with considerable concentration. This vintage has for the first time incorporated fruit from Stellenbosch, adding ripe, supple tannins to the blend.

Colour: Vibrant brick red.

Aroma: Ripe red fruit, with a fragrant lift, with liquorice and spice notes.

Palate: Fruit follows through, with fragrant notes completing the medium bodied mouthfeel. Well integrated with a smooth finish.

Cellaring: The wine is ready for drinking. Enjoy over the next year or two.
