Vineyards
Grapes are sourced from selected vineyard blocks in the Western Cape region prior to the harvest season. Cool Mediterranean climate and loamy clay soils. Harvested at optimum ripeness beginning to mid February – picked at 24ºB

Vinification
Fermentation (25 - 28ºC) takes place on its skins in static red fermenters for approximately 5 days, pressed off skins prior to dryness to avoid any unnecessary varietal tannins, yet retaining its soft ripe tannins. Malolactic fermentation and maturation takes place in 300-litre French oak barrel – 12 months (30% of the final bottled product), balance matured in stainless steel tank for 8 months on French oak staves.

Winemaker's Tasting Note
A charming medium bodied wine with a vivid ruby-red colour. Banana, raspberry and ripe fruit on the nose. Ripe mulberry fruit pallet with elegant tannin and soft, fruity finish. Well integrated oak aromas complements a well balanced wine.
 
Serving Suggestions
Serve with red meat dishes. Oxtail is ideal with this wine.
