Region: Stellenbosch

Tasting note:

The Series M 2016 displays a dark mulberry hue, with inky depth. Attractive in its subtlety, this wine displays pure, elevated aromas of cranberry, ripe raspberry and sour cherry fruit. The aroma palette is further nuanced by vanilla, pencil shavings, cedar and toasty baking spice. Finally, fragrant Lilac invokes a delicate floral headiness. Lean and poised on entry, a fine core of acidity supports its succulent mid-palate. The tannins are fine-grained and velvety, adding plushness. Nothing is rushed with this wine. It continually builds in intensity, showing fullness of body and a long finish of blue fruit. Series M 2016 is quietly assertive. Although immediately engaging, cellaring will reward the patient collector.

“Lush and plush, this wine reveals a deep dark purple-garnet colour. While initially quite sweet, sappy and resinous on opening, a little time in glass allows the wine to gracefully compose itself and push its shoulders back to boldly reveal a beautiful nose of blackberry pie, cola, blueberry crumble, Ceylon tea, sweet cherry tobacco, sun raisined cranberry, a sweet toffee apple opulence and a gravelly, blackberry compote complexity.” – Greg Sharwood (MW)
