Tasting Notes:

Medium intensity of colour with a bright crimson hue. The wine portrays a complex mix of red fruits, spicy notes and perfumy characters. Further interest beckons via subtle oaking. The palate is bright and youthful with cherry and fruit tart flavours. Fine grainy tannins add to the structure of the wine.

These limited release wines demonstrate the distinctiveness of specific vineyard sites and represent our finest quality. Groenekloof is situated near Darling on the West Coast and consists of a series of hills running parallel to the ocean which rise to 385 metres above sea level.

The grapes were sourced from a south-west facing bush vine vineyard grown in decomposed granite and table mountain sandstone.

Fermentation initiated in stainless tanks and underwent a series of pump overs until dry. Further maceration allowed before drawing off and light pressing.

This wine spent 17 months in French oak barrels ( 500lit) (20 % new, 20% 2nd , 60% 3rd fill and older).

Food pairing

Warm fennel & pomegranate salad. Springbok loin.
