An exceptional Swartland block of pinotage, on deep oakleaf soils at Rheeboksfontein, yielded fruit of intense concentration. This block has been used since the inception of the Spice Route Wine Company, and continues to deliver high quality. Another warm Swartland vintage has produced a wine with ripe, dark character.
Colour: Deep ruby, with dark purple tones
Aroma: Dark, sweet fruits with youngberry and dried prunes. Liquorice and pine needles, with vanilla hints.
Palate: Well developed tannins, with integration of brooding fleshy fruits and oak flavours. Balanced medium body, with a full finish.
