Hand picked from 15 to 25-year-old dryland vines on Swartland Schist and Shale soils. Harvesting took place from the middle of February to end of February. 100% destemmed and naturally fermented in open top fermenters. Barrel maturation in 500L French oak barrels for 10 months.

Wonderfully perfumed with hints of red and dark fruits, pepper and earthiness. Medium-bodied on the palate with primary fruit expression beautifully balanced by fine tannin and subtle acid giving freshness and lifting the wine. The earthy and spicy notes give texture and depth to the palate and provide a savoury and satisfying finish.
