Lively ruby with forthcoming black cherry and plum flavours gently brushed with spice, nicely rounded with well-integrated smooth tannins and a juicy texture. Berry-toned complexity lingers pleasantly and invites relaxed dishes such as Cassoulet or Mushroom Risotto; Merlot/Shiraz dominated blend with a touch of Cabernet, Cinsaut and Pinotage.

The cultivars were vinified separately and then blended together. NT112 yeast was used. Pumping over was done 3 times per day in red wine tanks. Some French oak staves were used in the tanks to give the wine some complexity.
