Spicy aromas of liquorice and vanilla overlay rich blackcurrant fruit. Careful oaking provides the necessary structure for the ripe, full and fruit-driven mid palate. Complex and long lasting, this wine has depth and power and will reward further bottle ageing.

A classic Cab that will compliment all meals when a fine red wine is called for; or to end off an evening with rich cheeses.

Origin: Paarl
Viticulture: 10 year old vineyards. Very dry and warm year. Berries have small size and very concentrated fruit.

in the cellar : Cool-crushed and cold-soaked for a few days prior to fermentation. During fermentation, aerated pump-overs 4 times a day further help the gentle extraction of colour and tannins. Post fermentation skin contact and 18 - 24 months of oak-aging produce a wine that has both bold structure and sufficient weight on the midpalate.
