See our Ken Forrester tasting blog for details of this wine in action.
One of the very first Rhône style blends in South Africa.
59% Shiraz, 9% Mourvedre, 32% Grenache.
From duplex soils, fine sandy loam on a clay base and fermented in open tanks with gentle extraction by pumping over and then pressed and racked into second- and third-fill French oak barrels for 18 months. This adds complexity and structure to the soft natural tannins.
This elegant Rhône blend displays Old World Style with New World fruit. Hint of Grenache’s earthy rusticity and Shiraz’s noble spice with hints of nutmeg and salty black olive on the finish. Balanced with soft integrated tannins.
