The grapes come from five blocks on the farm resting on south facings slopes between 180m and 215m above sea level. Our 7Km proximity to the ocean guarantees fresh natural acidity and mineral salinity. The vineyard blocks are protected from the powerful Cape Doctor wind by a eucalyptus forest.

The grapes from each block were picked and treated separately utilizing both stainless steel tanks as well as 5000L truncated open top casks. Each varietal underwent a 4-day pre-fermentation cold soak before fermentation was initiated. After fermentation, only the Cabernet Sauvignon was subjected to a two-week post fermentation maceration to ensure a solid tannic structure before the wine was subjected to a 22- month barrel aging period. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot components are matured in 100% new French oak with the other varietals being matured in second fill French oak. The selected barrels were then blended before being filtered and bottled. This wine is vegan friendly.

This wine exhibits fruits on the darker side of the spectrum with cassis and rich fruitcake on the nose accompanied by cinnamon spice and dark chocolate from generous oak aging. Concentrated dark berries are complimented by a creamy texture with soft elegant tannins delivering a beautiful long-lasting finish. Despite the current appeal, there is enough underlying power for a long future ahead. Drink now or up until 2033.

55.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 5.5% Malbec, 5.5% Cabernet Franc, 5.5% Petit Verdot
