A phenomenal expression of Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon with a maritime influence that sets it apart, yet with a nod to Bordeaux.
With carefully selected fruit from the cool gravelly slopes facing False Bay to the rich red granitic soils around Stellenbosch, the wine gains its complexity by expertly blending fruit from 4 specifically diverse terroirs.
Ripe cherries and fresh plums are balanced on the nose by vanilla and cedar spice. The palate has lush layers of fruit and spice plus smooth velvety tannins with a firm structure and lengthy finish.
