Tasting Notes:

This wine makes a bold statement with its powerful structure and expressive fruit composition. The classic oak character is seamlessly integrated with the fruit and the fresh berry acid gives the wine vibrance and purity of fruit. The firm tannins are in perfect harmony with the wine leaving a lingering fruit sensation and satisfaction.

Ophthalmologist Anton van Biljon and his wife Julia feel both privileged and proud to be able to produce their own wine, on their own property. Their small boutique farm in the Polkadraai Hills outside Stellenbosch has four hectares under vine, planted with the five classic Bordeaux red varieties. These are vinified in their cellar into one quality wine, Cinq, by top consultant and red-wine making maestro, Chris Keet.

This small farm is situated in the Polkadraai region of Stellenbosch neighbouring esteemed producers like Reyneke and De Toren. The region is known for their deep, fertile and well drained decomposed granitic soils and moderating sea breezes off False Bay lying to the South. The farm has been planted to all five classic Bordeaux varieties – Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Meticulous viticultural practices yield fruit with excellent colour, concentrated fruit flavours and firm tannins.

The focus is on producing premium quality grapes which are nurtured in the winery on the farm using traditional winemaking techniques and combined with modern technology to produce classic and powerful wines.

The wine is matured in carefully selected French oak barrels for 18 months, blended and bottled.
