Distinctive aromas of tomato leaf, pencil shavings and mulberry beckon on the nose. A rich and well-rounded wine with sump tuous dark fruit flavours supported by velvety tannins.

in the vineyard : Organically farmed, trellised with drip irrigation with different cover crops and organic mulching to stimulate healthy soil microbic activity. Strict pruning and green leaf management, essential for pest control and optimal ripening of the fruit. Tasted frequently by the winemaker and viticulturist to determine optimal ripeness.

in the cellar : During alcoholic fermentation frequent pump-overs was done on the must. This was done to ensure good colour and tannin extraction to enhance the length and mouth feel of the wine.
