A dry red wine. Full-bodied wine with flavours of cassis and ripe black berries supported by ripe silky tannins and tinged with vanilla oak.

in the vineyard : This year produced vibrant red wines with velvet tannins and good phenolic ripeness as a result of even ripening over a long mild period of harvest. Grapes were selected from the Swartland region for chunky tannins and expressive fruit to compliment the finer structure of the fruit from the Robertson area.

in the cellar : Fermented on the skins at 28°C until dry. After pressing, the young wine was allowed to complete malolcatic fermentation on French oak staves then left for a further 3 months wood maturation. Final blending and bottling takes place at our cellars in Wellington.
