Made from a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Syrah. This South African red has a deep magenta colour, intense aromas of red fruits and raw cocoa with hints of cinnamon and cloves. The palate has elegant and luscious tannins with French Oak creating a full bodied wine with a voluptuous finish.
Winner of a Gold medal at the Michelangelo International Wine Awards 2021.
A certain amount of sorting and selection took place in the vineyards leaving sun- burnt berries on the vines. Once de- stemmed, the berries underwent a second sorting, which further removed excess stems, raisin berries and leaves, before proceeding to whole- berry fermentation in a wooden vat. A soft tannin structure was achieved through regular remontage of the wine. (French term for the process of pulling out wine from underneath the cap of grape skins and then pumping it back over the cap in order to stimulate maceration.) The total maturation of the skins were 15 days and once malo- lactic fermentation was completed the wine further matured in 225 L French oak barrels for 18 consecutive months.
Serve with a Rack of Lamb or a pot roast.
