Appearance: Clear ruby colour. 
Bouquet & Palate: This Cape blend (15% Pinotage) reveals raspberries and blackcurrant on the nose with a hint of spicy eucalyptus and

in the vineyard : 

Wine-growing Area: Klein River Ward

about the harvest: All grapes were hand picked.

in the cellar : 

All grapes were hand picked and sorted before a pure yeast culture was inocculated. The juice was pumped over the skins 3-5 times per day for 5 days and the cake punched down. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was drained off the primary lees and transferred to a resting tank. Malolactic fermentation and a brief settling period preceded the wine to a combination of 225 liter barrels of French oak types. The wine spent between 12- 14 months in barrels before blending, bottling and labeling.
