  • Tasting Note: Forceful South African Cabernet, full of black cherry, blackcurrant and chocolate on a background of warm, toasty oak, freshened by a breath of mint.
  • Food Matching: The intense berry fruit in this wine make it an excellent partner to dishes like roast turkey or try with a fine piece of British beef.
  • Vineyard: Sourced from selected parcels planted between 1998 and 1999 in Hutton soils (decomposed granite) at a density of 3200 vines per ha. Vineyard practices include vertical hedge trellising, pruning to 2 bud spurs every 15cm and supplementary drip irrigation.
  • Vinification: Harvest was carried out by hand.The bunches were de-stalked and the berries hand sorted before crushing and fermenting in stainless steel tanks. Pump overs were performed for 6 days before a further maceration of 5 days. After pressing, the wine was then racked to 50% new French oak barrels for malo-lactic fermentation and 20 months ageing.
  • Awards and Press News: Classically restrained wine with black fruits, tea, and a hint of orange peel. Young and still quite tannic. Needs time. 91/100
