Focused, taut, spicy nose with a hint of earthiness and perfumed red fruits. The pallet is fresh with savoury, grippy tannins and lovely berry and red cherry fruits.
The vineyards are grown on different soil combinations of shale, schist and granite. We also sourced some Syrah from the Swartland region. Natural fermentation took place in 5000l oak open top fermenters. Maturation took place for 10 months in 2000l French oak foudres and smaller barrels.
