Interesting herbaceous profile, showing earthy, crushed leaf components and even agave, but without any green, bitter elements. The palate is broad, with red fruited accessibility, and the property’s signature structure and firm tannins. Medium bodied.
Drink now to enjoy the fresh fruit or keep for 2 – 3 years for the development of secondary characteristics.
65% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Pinotage, 3% Malbec
