Violets, cassis and dried herb aromas form a complex bouquet, hinting at the palate’s awaiting intensity. Ripe blackberry flavours are prominent on the firmly structured palate of fine, fruit tannins. Subtle oak derived characters of cinnamon and vanilla are also evident.

Food Suggestions

This blend matches classic and special occasion meals such as roast beef and lamb. Makes a worthy gift.

In The Vineyard

ORIGIN Paarl
CLIMATE Mediterranean
VITICULTURE Simonsberg slopes of weathered granite and clay loam soils.

In The Cellar

The smallest, waxiest berries are selected for this Bordeaux blend. Cultivars are fermented individually and remain on the skins well after fermentation is complete. This post-fermentative maceration adds layer upon layer of tannin structure and contributes a roundness and silky texture. The cultivars are then blended shortly before pressing. The wine is aged in oak barrels for 12 - 18 months.
