To achieve the desired colour, most of the juice was drained
directly after crushing, with some blocks receiving up to two hours
of skin contact. Each variety was handled separately and fermented
cold at 14°C to retain the delicate aromas and flavours. The final
blending of varieties created complexity, consistency and balance

Palate: Soft and juicy, bouncing with succulent ripe strawberries,
raspberries and mulberries tinged with a hint of spice. Finishes
with great balance, freshness and fruity intensity.
Grapes were sourced from a cross-section of regions selected
for optimal expression of each variety. Vineyard tactics included
pruning to two-bud spurs, shoot removal, bunch thinning and
canopy management for best ripeness and quality. Grapes were
hand-harvested from mid-February to late March at an average
ripeness of between 21 and 22°B.
A classic blend of noble red wine varieties, which
consists of predominantly Merlot and Pinotage.
