Tasting Notes:

An appealing savoury nose with understated Biltong, Fynbos, spice and a subtle Lavender nuance. It has a succulent and juicy entry to the mouth with abundant plum and raspberry fruit flavour. Bright, light, tensile and lithe with warm spice notes of cinnamon and touch of cedar. Layered with balanced interplay of fruit and well-meshed oak. Self-contained, elegant and smooth textured, the lengthy wine finishes dry with a spicy tail.

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.   Our vineyards were planted on the Southern and Western slopes of these mountains. This particular wine is from the Southern slopes where there is more Clay in the soil mixed with Malmesbury shale. The combination of slope and soil culminates into this deeper and richer style red blend.

These grapes originate from our Riebeeksrivier farm and all vineyard blocks are kept apart, processed and fermented separately. Fermentation took place in a combination of Italian concrete and stainless steel tanks. The different fermentation vessels ensures more dimensions to the wine as well as enhancing the unique characteristics of each block. After fermentation, the wine was aged in 4th and 5th fill French oak barrels and Stainless steel tanks for 16 to 18 months. With each vintage, the blend, or cultivar percentages may change, as no vintage is ever the same and the winemaker will thus vary the blending components to achieve a consistent style in the wine.
