Quick Overview

Bursts with raspberries, allspice and a grapefruit-cool-climate-Syrah typicity underscored by dark fruit and floral incense. Structurally more intense than recent vintages with the Porseleinberg Syrah starting to make an impact, with a refreshing acidity luring you back for more. The Viognier adds subtle hi-tone nuances to the aromatic profile and some textural qualities. Bitter dark chocolate on the palate with cold soaked game, black fruit, hints of smoky minerality and oak spice. A pure, focussed, textured and penetrating palate.


73% Syrah


12% Cabernet Sauvignon


10% Grenach Noir

Details

This wine is the perfect example of identifying “undiscovered” parcels of vineyard with amazing potential and utilizing it to unleash its world class quality. Most of the Syrah, Grenache Noir, Cinsault and Viognier come from the Swartland with its unique growing conditions and dryland farmed vineyards to ensure it deep-rooted vines and therefore optimal concentration of colour, flavour and tannin structure. The Grenache Noir was matured in 600L barrels to retain the unmistakable fruit and vibrancy of the cultivar. The Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from Franschhoek and Stellenbosch.
