The grapes were sourced from top-performing vineyards situated in the Darling, Stellenbosch and Paarl wine-growing areas. The vines are grown in granite, sandstone and shale soils, resulting in grapes with a higher natural acidity and resulting freshness. Open vineyard canopies bring about greater sunlight penetration of the grape bunches, contributing to a well-balanced acidity, in turn contributing to better tannin structure and fruit expression as well as deeper colour intensity.
Colour Ruby red.
Bouquet An abundance of ripe dark berry fruit and a fine dusting of spice, nuts and oak shavings.
Palate A layered, textured mouthful of hedgerow fruits, cassis, light leather and cigar box. Refined, elegant and svelte with a pleasant dryness that add to the long finish.
