A deep ruby red colour. Intense flavours of fynbos, mint and berries welcome you on the nose. Follow buy aromas of cinnamon, lead pencil and dark chocolate. The palate is full flavoured with sweet cherries and a spicy undertone. All these are then beautifully wrapped in supple tannins which give this wine great balance and elegance.

An elegant and stylish wine that will pair beautifully with Fillet Mignon and a Béarnaise Sauce or roast leg of lamb with rosemary sprigs and baby potatoes.
