A medium-bodied red wine with upfront notes of raspberries, cherries mulberries, plumbs, slight notes of fruitcake, pencil shavings, tobacco and mint on the nose. These juicy notes cross over onto the palate all supported by velvety tannins that linger and create an elegant finish.

about the harvest: The Grapes are harvested from southwest facing vineyards in the Franschhoek valley. The well-drained, decomposed sandstone soils are ideal for the cultivation of Cabernet Sauvignon. The winemaker implements appropriate canopy management to achieve berries with deep colour and concentrated fruit flavours.

in the cellar : What makes this wine unique is the location of the vineyard. The vineyard is situated next to a row of eucalyptus trees. During winter rain, the eucalyptus trees suck up all the water from the surrounding soils. The water is then pushed out from the tip of the leaves and the wind disperses it over the vineyard where it lands on the grapes creating that unique minty taste in the wine. High temperatures during summer cause the eucalyptus trees to ‘sweat’ from the stomata and produce a mist that blows over the vineyard, further contributing to the minty flavour.
