Tasting Notes

Enjoy between 16-18°C. Beautiful, rich Bordeaux-style blend. Intense berry flavours and juicy tannins, hints of chocolate and mint. Just a touch of oak, fresh and fruity, yet lots of depth and a lingering finish.

Blend Information

30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Petit Verdot, 10% Malbec

Food Suggestions

Pairs very well with red meat dishes and red wine based tomato sauces. Very good match with Italian dishes.

In The Vineyard

Wine of Origin Wellington. Wellington has become independent from Paarl and is now a separate district. Granite soils and Mediterranean climate. Low yields of 6-8 tons/ha. Warm and sunny days with cooler nights and a light afternoon breeze from the Atlantic Ocean.

About The Harvest

The grapes are hand-harvested in the early morning hours when the temperatures are still low. The growing season was marked by rainy conditions early, which led to higher-than-usual disease pressures. The growing season also ran late, and many varieties ripened at or near the same time, putting stress on wineries where space is a premium. The steady breezes in Wellington helped to keep the grapes healthy after the rains

In The Cellar

Temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot portion where matured for three months on French oak staves.
