Marrying Paarl and Stellenbosch fruit, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with 13% Petit Verdot (something of a signature blending grape for José Condé) offers excellent value for the money, with mint, bramble and black currant fruit, smooth, granular tannins and sweet vanilla spice. 2018-23



Winemaker Notes

We source our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from two different sites, one in Stellenbosch and one in Paarl. The Stellenbosch vineyard is found between 180m to 260m above sea-level on a North-West-facing slope and deep Tukulu soils. This vineyard ripens slowly and gradually to form dark and concentrated fruit flavours. Dry-land Cabernet from trellised Agter-Paarl vineyards adds juicy dark fruit flavours, ripe tannins and balances the strong Stellenbosch structure.
An inviting nose of sweet coconut, tobacco and Classic Cabernet cassis. These flavours follow through on the palate, backed by vanilla oak flavours from the barrel maturation. Juicy red wine gum flavours on the palate provide a lingering, lengthy finish. This full-bodied wine with its soft tannins pairs well with meaty dishes, strong cheese, pasta, grilled mushrooms and dark chocolate.
