Tasting Notes: Appealing aromas of spicy fruitcake, black cherry, blackcurrant and cedar. A nuanced, layered and silky textured palate which abounds with richly ripe black fruits - cherry, blackcurrant, cassis - tempered by harmonious oak which is superbly integrated, making for a harmonious whole. There are cigarbox and spice notes apparent too, along with an inky depth of avour. Overall, it's a rened and elegant wine with silky tannins, a plush opulence and a long, lingering aftertaste.

In the Vineyard: This wine is wine is made from grapes from our Riebeeksrivier farm in the Swartland.
