The revered treatment this Cape-style red blend receives from vineyard to cellar shows in its tasting. Made in a more opulent style, this wine brims with rich and layered dark fruit, black cherries and plums on the nose, with sweet spice provided by Shiraz and the use of American and French oak. The palate reveals fine but grippy tannins, offset by the attractive juicy fruit character which follows through from the nose. A bright line of acidity provides a long, mouth-filling finish.
