A mix of ripe, dark blue and black berries and plum fruit, brushed with spice and herbs. Succulent entry to the mouth with immediate plump, plush blueberry and plum. That rounded berry vibrance makes way for a squeeze of chalky tannin and dry oak grip which balances the fruit well. Lovely inky licorice adds intrigue. Suave, genteel and elegant with a glossy, smoothly varnished long farewell.

Vineyard / Terroir / Climate This wine was produced from grapes from our Riebeeksrivier farm in the Swartland, which is situated on the slopes of the Kasteelberg Mountains on the Malmesbury side. These vineyards are planted on schist and clay soils on the Southern and Western slopes of the farm. The prolonged drought South Africa experienced, resulted in lower yields and visibly smaller bunches. The 2018 vintage indicated promising wines with good fruit. Advantageously the drier weather resulted in healthy vines with little or no pests and disease.
