Tasting Notes:

An attractive bouquet with excellent fruit expression of fresh cassis and red cherries with mineral notes, fynbos and classic tobacco leaf. A fine example of sophistication and elegance showing complexity and depth of flavour with dry, silky tannins and perfectly integrated oak. Utterly complete and balanced with superb fruit, lovely savoury nuances, a slight creaminess in texture and earthiness that lingers.

The Helderberg Annandale pocket of wine farms form part of the Golden Triangle, an area well-known for noble grape varietals, especially Cabernet and often referred to as Cab Valley. Our Cabernet Sauvignon vines are planted on the warmer, lower slopes of the Estate. A wine of poise, possessed with real elegance and polished tannins.

A cold and wet winter filled up the soil profiles. Warm weather in August resulted in earlier bud break, after which a warm, dry and windy summer accelerated ripening by two weeks. Lower temperatures at night during ripening contributed to pleasing colour and flavour.

Guiding our Grapes from Vine to Wine Each individual barrel’s evolution is closely monitored throughout the total maturation period which, for our red varietals, can last for a period of up to 19 months.

18 months in French oak barrels, 60% new.
