The grapes were sourced from top-performing vineyards situated in the Darling, Cape Town and Paarl wine-growing areas. The vines are grown in granite and shale soils, resulting in grapes with a higher natural acidity and resulting freshness. Open vineyard canopies bring about greater sunlight penetration of the grape bunches, contributing to a well-balanced acidity, in turn contributing to better tannin structure and fruit expression as well as deeper colour intensity

Palate Packed with plum, black cherry and a touch of leather. Dried herbs and fynbos follow through to a velvety mouthfeel with a modest tannin grip. Elegantly structured and rewardingly long.
The grapes were sourced from top-performing vineyards situated in the Darling and Cape Town districts, both cool climate winegrowing areas with the benefit of slower ripening of the grapes to achieve greater flavour intensity. The vines are grown in granite soils with good water-holding capacity, resulting in grapes with a higher natural acidity, adding to the freshness and longevity of the wine. Open vineyard canopies bring about greater sunlight penetration of the grape bunches, contributing to a well-balanced acidity, in turn contributing to better tannin structure and fruit expression as well as deeper colour intensity.
