Tasting Notes

Very dense ruby with brooding opaque heart; tightly knit complexity reveals beautiful layers of black currant, spiced plum, blackberry and violets; firm, velvety tannins and cedary oak flavours adds depth and substance to the plush layers of fruit; exciting and stylish with great focus and purity permeating this black beauty.
Elsie Pels - Cape Wine Master

Ageing Potential

5 - 8 years maturation should greatly reward with complexity and elegance.
