24%, Shiraz 20%, Petite Syrah 19%, Grenache Noir 16%,
Cinsaut 16% and Malbec 5%. The Sangiovese is grown
on the northern the slopes of the Helderberg, with the
Shiraz and Malbec, Petite Syrah, Grenache and Cinsaut all
originating from Agter-Paarl. The Cinsaut and Grenache
are bush vine cultivated. The soils these vineyards grow
in are mostly weathered granite, which imparts excellent
minerality to the fruit.
In the cellar, the individual components spent 8 months
in the finest 2nd and 3rd fill oak barrels, whereafter they
were blended. The result is a wine that shows a slight
saltiness on the nose with hints of soft cardamom spice.
The palate is infused with red berries, Turkish delight
and dried floral spice on the aftertaste.
A perfect partner for any Italian lamb dishes
and meaty artisanal flatbreads.
