Deep ruby-purple hues hint at the intensity of this wine. Elegant and powerful with ripe cherries and red currents merging with spicy smoked paprika and cinnamon. Generosity of sweet fruit with elements of crème brulé and toast from oak, support the medium bodied palate in its intensity and persistence. Complex star anise and cured meats add a third dimension - a wine to lay down for the medium to long term.



One of the best, close to perfect vintages in the last 10 years. January was warm with good rainfall setting up the vines with an ideal amount of soil moisture. This was followed by a month of cool and dry conditions, perfect for slow and steady fruit ripening. The cooler conditions and even ripening resulted in producing fine elegant wines.



A combination of our F block WA Cape clone from on the hill, and block E – SA125 clone on the flats.  Each batch made individually, cold soak to start, fermented in open pots, short extended maceration on dryness before being pressed to tank.  Racked to new and seasoned small French oak.  Matured in a 10 degree celcius cellar has ensured a freshness and slow oak maturation of this exceptional wine.
