An elegant, medium-bodied Grenache-led blend. Dark and broody on the nose with savoury, meaty notes and hints of tar and liquorice. Red cherry and an iron-rich minerality (derived from clay and granite-rich soils) dominate the palate. A wine with rolling red and black notes and a long, lingering finish.
Garnacha (57%), Carinena (24%), Tempranillo (10%), Monastrell (9%)
Idiom wines is based in the heart of the Helderberg range. This southernmost part of the Stellenbosch wine region provides the backdrop and the perfect climatic conditions for the incredible range of wines. A celebration of terroir, unusual varietals and masterful blends, Idiom is so-called because it is home to the Cape expression of so many European classics. The Cape Idiom, if you will.
