Tasting Notes:
Type – Red
Style – Dry
Body – Medium
Taste – Herbaceous
This wine is created to show the fresh, fruity and spice-driven flavours of these Rhone varietals. The colour is youthful and purple/red. The nose is one of crushed black pepper, dark mulberry and mixed berry coulis. Pure, clean dark red berry flavours flow onto a smooth palate with sufficient structure to warrant enjoyment with food such as Gourmet Pizza with Carpaccio and rocket salad.
Winemaker Notes:

57% Syrah, 24% Grenache, 12% Mourvedre, 7% Tannat

Grapes were fermented in multiple cuvees of Stainless Steel Tanks using different techniques on batches. Made up from 11 different ferments, the blending components of the wine are diverse in style. In some cases a small percentage of healthy stalks were added back to the ferment. A number of ferments were done with natural yeasts. Maceration on skins was selective depending on the flavours in the wine. Soft pressed to allow fruit dominant characteristics. After maturation in older and large format Oak, the wine was fined with Vegecol and crossflow filtered before bottling. Wood Elevation: 2nd and 3rd Fill French oak barrels and 65hl Foudres for 14 months.

Made from grapes grown in the Stellenbosch and Paarl regions from multiple vineyards, ranging from close to the Indian Ocean to the mountains of Paarl.
