Awards, Reviews and other Notes

4 ½ Stars 2020 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Lifted aromas of peach tea & red orchard fruit in 17 (93 pts). Palate is toasty from 15 months in 89% new oak, some American, with plump black plums & piquant tannin finish. Harmonious, shows good depth from single bushvine parcel named for soil colour.



Winemaker Notes

The 2017 vintage was a challenging one that led to a smaller, but very promising harvest for the Stellenbosch region. The dry warm weather produced grapes with small berries and great fruit intensity. The cooler nights and warmer days during the ripening period resulted in grapes with excellent colour and fruit formation.
Alluring nose with a perfume of black currant mixed with a sweet spice and cedar wood. Seamless tannins wash over the palate that shows big fruit concentration. Fresh flavours of black cherries, red berries and cassis followed by an underlying support of vanilla pod and toasted oak.
