Intense, deep purple colour. Spice and ripe, mulberry fruit aromas with hints of bracken, liquorice and coconut. Soft, ripe fruit on the palate with ripe, fine tannins. Excellent structure and long finish.
The grapes are sourced from vineyards within the Helderberg area. Full ripe fruit was handpicked at the end of March 2015. Crushed by hand in small bins and cold soaked for three days prior to fermentation. Fermented with selected yeast strain for 10 days. The wine was aged in 300-litre French oak barrels for 26 months (80% barrels were first fill and 20% were second fill). Barrel selection was done in order to select only the best barrels.
This wine would be great to enjoy now, but could be enjoyed up to 5 years from vintage.
Excellent served with robust meat dishes like roast beef, oxtail or rack of lamb.
