The Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec grapes were sourced from carefully selected trellised vineyards in Stellenbosch. These low yielding vines contribute to an increased concentration of flavour in the wine.
Rich and lavish in flavour and character with plum, cassis, old leather and dried herb flavours. Plush, generous and opulent with well-managed oak-aging. Smooth and satisfying and will reward further aging for at least 10 years.
