Tasting Notes:

Exceptionally intense and complex on the nose with blackberry, black cherry and bramble in abundance and subtle hints of forest floor, dark chocolate, aniseed and spicy tobacco. The walk in the Black Forest continues with blue and blackberry dancing on a tight rope with focus and concentration, following through onto a perfectly balanced, fine-grained, velvety palate. The finish lingers with hints of fresh mint, cinnamon and perfume. Complex and structured.

The 2017 harvest was one of very high quality. The month of January was warm, but during February and March, we had more moderate temperatures and a little rain, that contributed to slower ripening. The result was the development of healthy grapes, which had great flavour and colour.

Produced from vineyards with an average age of 36 years. Vines are grown in both decomposed granite and Table Mountain sandstone soils. Combination of trellised and bush vines, irrigated as well as dry land. Yield approximately 7 – 8 tons per hectare.

Grapes were hand sorted three times, crushed and left to cold soak on the skins for five days. After fermentation the grapes were basket pressed and allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine was then aged for 16 months prior to bottling. Fermentation Temperature: 28°C.

16 months in French tight grain oak barrels (20% second, 30% third fill and 50% fourth fill)

Food pairing

Roast beef, beef carbonnade, plainly grilled, lazy-aged sirloin or rib-eye, ostrich and venison dishes.
