On the nose you will find rich aromas of plums and blackcurrant backed by mild wooded spices. The wine is medium-bodied with concentrated berry flavours, well-structured tannins and a delightful lingering aftertaste.

Tasting notes

Tasting note: On the nose you will find rich aromas of plums and blackcurrant backed by mild wooded spices. The wine is medium-bodied with concentrated berry flavours, well-structured tannins and a delightful lingering aftertaste.

Food suggestion: Best enjoyed with a rich meal such as beef or game, but as it ages it will soften and will go well with roasts and lamb stews.

Wine specs

In The Vineyard

A cooler ripening season with even temperatures led to steady and measured ripening of the grapes. Overall, the smaller berry size and lower yields promise great concentration, good quality and intense colour.

Wine specs

The Harvest

Grapes are picked by hand, placed into small lug boxes and transported to the cellar in cool trucks. Harvest begins from March

Wine specs

In The Cellar

The wine was pressed before alcoholic fermentation was completed, to prevent the extraction of hard and dry tannins.

Maturation: The wine was matured for 15 months in oak barrels – 85% of French origin and 15% American. A 50% portion of the barrels was first-fill.
