The grapes originated from high-quality vineyard sites around Stellenbosch, Elgin and the Swartland that were planted on a variety of soils, each specially selected for its unique contribution to the final wine.
The vineyards were hand-harvested during early March, and all bunches were sorted in the vineyard to ensure that only the most perfect grapes reached the winery.
On the nose: Dark berries (cherries, mulberries and plum) and exotic spice from oak with cool-climate pepper spice.
Palate: Generous, deep black fruit and a riper vintage fruit expression with pepper spice. Richness and juiciness with a round, integrated fruit core and silky ripe tannins. Shows elegant freshness and length with lingering fruit on the finish
Ageing potential: Soft ripe tannins give fullness and richness to the wine, making it exceptionally easy to drink, while still retaining the structure to support at least five years in the bottle.
