Whiffs of dark cocoa, cigar and tobacco leaves with blackcurrants, spice and fruitcake populate the bouquet. The palate is rich, supple and rounded with layers of those same elements: cocoa, cigars, fruitcake and black berries. While juicy and drinkable, it's textured with lovely ripeness. The core is firm with typical Cabernet Sauvignon backbone. It's poised and integrated with a long, pleasant finish.

These grapes are specially selected from the Groenekloof ward in the Darling area. This area is unique for its warm days and cool nights. This aspect, together with the deep red soils, is beautifully expressed in the wine as a mix between dark and red fruit flavours with good concentration and a soft juicy tannin structure.

"Anthonij Rupert Wyne proudly introduces the Protea Range. Everything about this range seeks to marry the old with the new. The heritage of the vines, innovatively tied into distinctive packaging designs, is made to be re-used and recycled, thus prolonging the lifecycle of the product. While we are celebrating Cape wine culture, we have stripped it down to some of the defining elements of the landscape, irrevocably tying the brand to the land. We invite you to be the judge!"
