The grapes for this wine were hand harvested from vineyards in Paarl and Stellenbosch. The wine was fermented in open and closed fermenters with regular punch downs and pump-overs to ensure upfront fruit and soft extraction. It spent 10 months in 3rd and 4th fill barrels with a portion of the blend remaining unoaked. On the nose you will encounter ripe cherry, strawberries and plums with ripe red berries and spices on the palate. A full structured and well balanced wine which rewards with a juicy yet elegant mouthfeel and silky tannins. The perfect partner to slow cooked casseroles, fillet, pastas, robust cheeses or a good old fashioned barbeque.
