Rich, robust, and a great value from South Africa. The grapes were harvested from vineyards in the Paarl, Pedeberg and Malmesbury regions. The grapes are mostly sourced from dry farmed old bush vines. These are mostly vineyards with small cropping levels resulting in wine with considerable concentration.
A deep, vibrant purple color with juicy, ripe fruit on the palate. The aroma is of ripe fruit and spice. The wine is super now. Enjoy over the next year or two.
"(a blend of shiraz, cinsaut, pinot noir, carignan and grenache, with bits of cabernet sauvignon and merlot; mostly from unirrigated bush vines.) Medium dark red. Slightly baked redfruit flavors of cherry and raspberry. Supple, sweet and very ripe, with good texture and a lightly peppery quality. Nicely chewy and fresh wine, finishing with light, slightly dry tannins. Very good value."
