A rich, ripe berry fruit nose with hints of cassis, coffee and chocolate on the palate.

in the vineyard : Combinations of trellised- and bush vines were used from all the different regions of Stellenbosch. The weather during the ripening season was sunny and dry while the Atlantic Ocean had a cooling effect. The difference in region, age, soil and harvest date for the grapes produces a fruity yet complex wine.

about the harvest: The grapes are harvested very ripe and fermented cool to retain soft fruit character. Pressed before dryness to retain soft tannins and gently oaked for further complexity.

in the cellar : The grapes were fermented cool to retain soft fruit character. Pressed before dryness to retain soft tannins and lightly oaked for further complexity.
