TASTING NOTESåÊThe wine shows bright fruits on the nose with aromas of raspberry, cherry and a hint of eucalyptus. The palate shows smooth pure fruit with refined notes of sour cherry, plum and cranberry. The palate is full, fresh and lively with a dense yet very supple tannin structure and a well-balanced, integrated acidity leaving a lingering finish.

VINTAGE CONDITIONSåÊThe vines are planted on our Groenkloof farm on the slopes of the Stellenbosch Mountain. The soil is composed of coffee coloured granite. The vines get full sun which allows for optimum development of rich berry characters in the grapes.

FERMENTATION AND AGINGåÊThe components of this blend were fermented separately in vineyard specific batches with pump-overs for colour and tannin extraction being performed regularly. The wine was carefully barrel matured for 14 months in second fill French oak barrels and a small un-oaked component was used to provide a fresh and lively character.
