Limited stock, 2015 vintage coming soon. Vineyard: Made primarily from cold pressed Merlot, the vineyard selected for this wine is nearly 20yrs old. Located at the forefront of a spur jutting out of the Voor Paardeberg Mountain, the berries are well exposed to sunlight. Exposure to sunlight is essential to eliminate any green flavours from the grape. The soil has a high clay percentage and this lends softness and volume to the wine. Great care is taken to ensure that the vines do not bear too great a crop or suffer from drought. This is done through green cropping of the vines and micro irrigation. Both practices help to preserve the natural acidity, freshness and vibrancy of the grape aromas. Vinification: All our grapes are picked at optimum ripeness in the early hours of the morning.

A very attractive bright pink colour. Aromas of strawberries, ripe raspberries, and cherries pair with a smooth, well-rounded palate that offers up pleasing volume and a long, persistent finish. The grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness, crushed, destemmed and deposited into the tanks, where they underwent a 24-hour pre-fermentation maceration. Each tank was bled 5-10% once the desired colour was obtained. The must was centrifuged, and the clean juice fermented without oxygen at 12°-15°C (54°-59°F). Fermentation of some lots was halted to maintain the fruit aromas along with a small percentage of residual sugar. The wine was stabilized, filtered, and bottled as quickly as possible. 85% Shiraz, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon.
