Tasting Notes:

Minerality entices from nose to finish on this age-worthy wine. The plush bouquet showing aromas of bright red cherry tobacco opens to reveal exquisite notes of floral perfume. A fine example of sophistication and finesse showing both complexity and depth of flavor. Superb red cherry and juicy plum with some pencil shavings entice. The silky, chalky tannin structure culminating in a dry, lingering finish tempts to further imbibing.

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.

With the first winter rainfall occurring at the end of May, it was one of the driest winters, which made for a challenging year. Winter was late but cold enough to ensure good dormancy in our vines. Hot temperatures from October resulted in earlier budding than 2015. Berries were smaller than usual with pleasing flavour concentration which made for a truly unique vintage.

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, 50% new.
