Winemaker's Notes

Each component distinctly displays its own qualities. This vintage shows great ripe red and black berry flavors on the nose as well as Mocha flavors. The Pinotage is soft and sweet while the Merlot and Shiraz offers a subtle spiciness. The Cabernet Sauvignon is the backbone of the blend with well balanced, smooth tannins that will do well with cellaring. Full on the palate with good length on the finish. This blend brings the best of Pinotage to the classic French varieties.

Critical Acclaim

"The union of Pinotage, Cabernet, Shiraz and Merlot showcases the best of each grape, offering blackberry, spice and mocha on the nose and flavors of ripe red fruit, pepper and cedar on the palate. Pinotage makes a soft and subtle show here, adding fruity heft without the angles. An elegant wine with a lot of personality."
