Tasting Notes:

This elegant blend between two selected barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, shows subtle berry aromas from the Cabernet Sauvignon and hints of cinnamon and spice from the Shiraz. The wood influence is delicate, with hints of pencil shavings contributing to this unique wine. It is a full bodied, complex wine, with a fine, tight tannin structure. Complex, rich and well balanced, with a fresh acidity. Will enjoy cellaring for many decades to come.

IMPROMPTU is made from a great passion for wine, the South African wine industry, art (wine as art), South Africa, and its people. Conceived by Port2Port and long-term partner, Art Logic; renowned South African artist, Sam Nhlengethwa’s piece entitled ‘Dedicated to Joe Henderson’ seemed to echo the power of improvisation, in life, art and jazz. Sam Nhlengethwa designed the label for this extremely limited edition of 200 magnums.

One third of total sales will be donated to the Lalela and Orange Babies charities.

Shiraz vineyards are on medium to poor soil to maintain low production levels (decomposed granite), and the Cabernet on high potential soil with more clay. Average age of vines: 23 years.
