Winemaker's comments:

Impressive deep red colour. Nose shows intense blackberry fruit with mocha chocolate, hints of cocoa, minerals, pepper, licourice and toast. Big, rich palate with complex fruit and plenty of fine tannins dragging the fruit along to an elegant long finish. Probably best between 2009 & 2020. Ideal with strong flavoured red meat, especially local venison and ostrich.

Type: Red Wine Maturation Potential: 3 to 15 yrs
Origin: Stellenbosch Appellation: Stellenbosch

Winemaker's comments:

Deep bright red colour. Intense, but elegant wild and red berry fruit with complex spice and white pepper nuances – all very persistent. Lovely purity of fruit on the palate, despite the range of interesting secondary flavours – incl. spice, pepper and subtle oak. Fine, dry and persistent finish. Probably best between 2010 & 2020. A pity to spoil this wine with food! Perhaps best with plainer food like roast chicken, potatoes or butternut to highlight the wines underlying subtleties.
