Tasting Notes

A ‘proudly South African’ cultivar exhibiting aromas of ripe cherry, strawberries and plums with ripe red berry fruit and spices on the palate. This full structured and well balanced wine rewards with a juicy but elegant mouthfeel and silky soft tannins.

Savour with slow-cooked casseroles, fillet, pastas, robust cheeses or a good old fashioned barbeque.

Additional Information
The Bat Eared Fox
Aptly named the bat eared fox (Otocyon megalotis) these fascinating little creatures have large ears which can pinpoint sounds underground with 100 % accuracy. Active during the day and night, they feed mainly on termites and live in old ant bear dens in the ground. We are actively trying to protect this unique species, indigenous to the Rooiberg Breede River Conservancy, as they are often identified by farmers as jackals and killed.
