Deep ruby with saturated opaque center; abundance of blackcurrant, fynbos and fennel with inky succulence and firm well-managed tannins; rich fruit is beautifully balanced with integrated oak flavours lending depth and complexity.
This wine will reward you well for cellaring for 6 - 8 years.
Delicious served with deboned lamb shoulder with black olive and herb stuffing.
