  • R 15000

The vineyards

The grapes are sourced from vineyards within the Helderberg area.  Full ripe fruit was handpicked at the end of March 2016.


The winemaking

Crushed by hand in small bins and cold soaked for three days prior to fermentation.  Fermented with selected yeast strain for 10 days.  The wine was aged in 300-litre French oak barrels for 24 months (60% barrels were first fill and 40% were second fill).  Barrel selection was done in order to select only the best barrels.


Winemaker’s comments

Intense, deep purple colour. Spice and ripe, mulberry fruit aromas with hints of bracken, liquorice and coconut. Soft, ripe fruit on the palate with ripe, fine tannins. Excellent structure and long finish.


Maturation potential:

This wine can be enjoyed now or for up to 10 years from vintage.   


Food pairing

Excellent served with roast beef, oxtail or rack of lamb.



Suitable for vegetarians but not for vegans.
