Set high up on the Helshoogte Pass, with breath-taking views of Stellenbosch and Table Mountain in the distance, this really is one of the gems in the Cape Winelands.
This wine has a beautiful garnet colour. There are berry aromas of cassis, red currant and blueberries on the nose. There are underlying notes of cocoa, fresh herbs and tobacco spice. The palate is packed with sweet berry fruit, flavours of dark chocolate and hints of dried herbs on the finish. The mid-palate is intense leading to a dry textured finish.
This wine will drink well now but will benefit from cellaring and will mature well into 2022.
It is perfect on its own, enjoyed at the end of a long day or with a crispy-skinned roast chicken and over-soft baked potato.
