Tasting Notes

Very deep ruby red colour.  Cherries, raspberries, plums and spice with subtle lavender and rosemary undertones. Different layers of aromas with good balance between fruit and spicy oak aromas.   Wine has a fruity entry with cherries, raspberries and blackcurrants. Good depth of flavours with balanced oak influence. Shows good dry but soft finish with juicy tannins on middle palate. Mouth filling tannin structure that will develop nicely with proper cellaring.

45% Shiraz, 28% Merlot, 22% Pinotage & 5% Cabernet Sauvignon

Food Pairing

The perfect food wine which will age with grace. This wine is suited to most red meat and game meat dishes.
