Tasting Notes:

Gentle herbaceous base note of dried lavender underpins more typical fynbos, blue and black fruit on the nose.
A structured, elegant yet powerful wine, the palate delivers black cherry, plum and dried herb flavours with a subtle punctuation of black pepper. Layered and complex, the ripe fruit is both succulent and beautifully integrated with the oak, which adds a light, dry tannin frame. The finish is long and refined.

This wine was produced from grapes from our Riebeeksrivier farm in the Swartland, which is situated on the slopes of the Riebeek Kasteel Mountains on the Malmesbury side. These vineyards are planted on schist and clay soils on the Southern and Western slopes of the farm.

Fermentation took place in a combination of Italian concrete (Nico Velo) and Stainless steel tanks, with each fermentation vessel contributing to the finesse and bright fruit evident in this wine. The wine was aged in 225L, French oak barrels for approximately 10 to 12moths. No new oak was used for aging this wine.
