SAWI Rating: 95 points | 2017 SAWi Awards - Platinum

A rich, deep, voluptuous Malbec from the Cape Winelands.

about the harvest: The grapes were hand-picked.

in the cellar : Malbec ripens quite early yielding superior quality fruit with good analysis. Whole bunch sorted over a week, extracting colour and aromas early. A slow fermentation to start, as well as extended time on the skins, further enhanced wine quality. The grapes were pressed at -2° balling and matured in 40% new French oak barrels for 12 months.
