An elegant wine with a deep ruby colour and a great balance between smoky and dark fruit flavours. This wine can easily mature for another 4+ years, but the well-ripened tannins provide a smooth mouthfeel making it accessible to be enjoyed now. Great to serve with roast meats, venison, and matured cheese.

 

Vinification

Grapes were harvested during April 2019. Slow ripening during the cooler part of the season resulted in elegant, full ripe fruit and soft tannins. Fermented in open tanks with regular pump overs. Malolactic fermentation was completed in tank before 24 month maturation in 300 Litre barrels for a layered structure.

Terroir

Mediterranean climate with annual rainfall of approximately 1000mm. The Estate is located on the upper slopes of the Breede River Valley at 240 – 350m above sea level. Cold winters with snow until late Spring, resulting in slow ripening. Harvest usually starts 2 – 3 weeks later than the rest of the country. Significant variation in diurnal temperature occurs in our region, with good sugar development during the warmer days while the drop in temperature at night preserves the balance of natural acids in the grapes. The soil is defined by a major geological fault, the Worcester Fault, which runs through the valley. Hills are composed of weathered sandstone and the valley floor is sedimented by a diversity of soil parent materials
