"Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot make up 11% of the blend here, bringing some much needed backbone to the Merlot. Leafy, floral, yet showing tannic structure and concentration, this is one of the Cape’s most appealing expressions of a difficult grape. Drink: 2015-20." Tim Atkin
Ripe plum colour with a ruby rim. The nose shows ripe fruit flavours, black cherries, plum, spice and a touch of chocolate. The ripeness of the fruit is balanced by fresh fruit acidity and soft wood/fruit tannins. The aftertaste is long and lasting.
9% Cabernet Sauvignon
5% Petit Verdot
