A rare glimpse of pure perfection only comes along every so often. Notes of luscious florals, plum and blackberry, with expressive notes of cassis, spice and fresh herbs on the nose.
Very versatile, this wine would complement red meat dishes or gourmet cheese platters.
The grapes were handpicked from premium vineyards situated in the Stellenbosch and Darling region. It was specifically selected for its unique terroir with intense fruit and body. Harvested in March 2010, fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks for 10 days. Cold soaking followed for three days prior fermentation and for three days post maturation, on the skins after fermentation was allowed. Aged for 42 months in 300-litre French oak barrels, of which 70% were first fill and 30% were second fill, the wine was lightly filtered before bottling.
Well concentrated with a deep red colour. A combination of luscious flaroals, plum, and blackberry with expressive notes of cassis, spice and fresh herbs. The palate is rich and smooth with subtle undertones of sweet spice and a hint of dark chocolate.
Ready to be enjoyed now with the potential to age further for ten years.
