Typically full-bodied and bold, this wine is instantly recognisable due to its deep and brilliant ruby red colour. Its palate bursts with rich red berry flavours and carefully balanced tannins.

Annelie Viljoen (Viticulturist) The grapes were sourced from vineyards in the Devon Valley, Stellenbosch Kloof, Helderberg and Jonkershoek areas. Grown on slopes that face in south and south-westerly directions to ensure cooler microclimates, the vineyards yielded an average of 8 to 10 tons per hectare.
Deon Boshoff (Cellar Master) / Bonny van Niekerk (Winemaker) The grapes were harvested by hand in March at 25° Balling. Fermentation on the skins took place for 10 to 12 days. More than half of the wine was matured in 300-litre French oak barrels, medium-toasted and from a variety of coopers. The remaining portion of wine was left to mature on French and Hungarian oak staves in stainless steel tanks.
Colour Intense dark red. Bouquet Aromas of blackcurrants, dark berries, raspberries and oak spice. Palate A full-bodied, smoky Cabernet Sauvignon with ripe plum and raspberry fruit flavours and hints of cloves and oak spice. Excellent integration of fruit and juicy tannins, with a lingering finish.
Excellent enjoyed on its own or served with roasts, grilled red meat dishes and savoury pastas.
