Tasting Notes:

Leading with bright, energetic fruit, abudant aromas of blackberries, sweet cassis, chocolate, liquorice and espresso roast. Secondary to that, the wine reveals a beautiful spice fraction with balsamic and a hint of pine seed aroma. The wine has a majestic richness on the palate accompanied with a beautifully crafted soft and supple tannin structure.

The label was created by a local Cape Town based artist, Lorraine Loots and designer, Lauren Ann McCarthy. The swallow on the front label represents the winemaker's relentless pursuit of aquiring knowledge in South Africa and California to produce his style of wines. It further relates to the warm, agile personailty of the wine. All labels are hand pressed using an old Heidelberg press.

The Marathon is a blend of two varietals orginally from Bordeaux, France.

The grapes were fermented in small upright French oak barrels and carefully punched-down not to over-extract the wine.

The Marathon was matured in 30% new oak for 16 months.
