Tasting Notes:

Understated fynbos edge to plump black plum and vanilla spice with a hint of violets on the nose. Complex and intriguing. The palate is simultaneously plush-textured and svelte but multi-faceted with plum-, blueberries-, ink and spice notes. A focused, linear wine that is graceful with beautifully integrated mature oak notes. The tail is long, spicy, rewarding and intricate.
