Gentle plum and black berry compote aromas with a light pepper nuance. The first impression is of succulence: a juicy mouthful of ripe plum and black berries. The smooth, silky texture is somewhat deceptive since the wine has a firm backbone but is well balanced, integrated and supple. Hints of tobacco leaf and liquirice can be found on the long, rich, lingering spicy aftertaste.
These grapes are specially selected from the Groenekloof ward in the Darling area and also from the Swartland area. The area is unique for its warm days and cool nights. This, together with the deep red soils shows beautifully in the wine as mix between dark and red fruit flavours, 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!"
