Tasting Notes

2008 Michelangelo International Wine Awards - Silver medal
Deep ruby colour with a purple/meniscus. Sweet ripe spiced plum and red berry fruits brushed with oak vanillin; smooth tannins and multi-layered melange of fruit creates a richly textured mouthful; approachable and seductive with a velvety finish. This wine will reward 2-3 years cellaring although it already delivers great pleasure.
Elsie Pels - Cape Wine Master
