Fleshy and inviting, showing layers of cassis, raspberry and blackberry paste inlaid with anise, singed apple wood and mint notes. Nice charcoal frame on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2023.
4 ½ Stars 2018 platter’s South African Wine Guide
Neatly sculpted, with French oak & fine tannin, 15’s layers of fruit are dark & delicious, laced with leather & earth. Still tight – deserves more time to develop. Decant if broaching now. Includes splash of petit verdot.



Winemaker Notes

The Cabernet Sauvignon is dazzling in the top 2015 vintage. It is medium in body but full in character, charm and structure. With air, notes of cassis, mint, baked plums and liquorice unfold on the nose, leading to a richly-fruited palate. Hints of dried herbs and beef stock add complexity and lure to the finely textured, fruit-coated tannins. The fresh acidity carries a long and lacy finish while the taught structure gives a platform for aging 2-5 years.
