The wine has a dark crimson colour. The entrance gives you light perfumed aromas of sweet red and dark berries. A good depth of fruit is evident with flavours of dark cherry, cassis and baked figs and plum. The tannins are very fine and silky and are complemented by a refreshing line of acidity that runs through, making it an elegant, well-balanced wine.
Style: Dry red, Cape Style Blend
Wood maturation: 19 Months in 100% French oak barrels. 18% new barrels were used with the remaining 73% in second-fill and 9% in third-fill barrels.
Cellaring potential: Will reach peak maturity five to eight years from vintage. Due to the elegance and fruit intensity it is also delicious to drink now.
