Tasting Notes

Velvety dark plum colour with opaque centre and slightly paling rim. Classically styled with intense flavours of cassis, mulberry and blackcurrant overlaid with cedar and spice of judicious oak maturation. Seamlessly crafted tannins gives depth and balance to this splendid wine.
Elsie Pels - Cape Wine Master
