Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) This vintage shows massive floral perfume with underlying redcurrant, cedar, black pepper, coriander spice and hints of Turkish Delight. The macerated red fruit carries through onto a palate layered with marzipan, minerals and a superb velvety structure. Textured, composed and seamless in style.

Winemaker's Notes

By blending the best components to create a wine that is true in character and consistent in quality we were rewarded with the 2009 Syrah/Viognier. The uber-ripe Viognier were blended to the Shiraz to add perfume to the spice. After the Syrah spent nine months in French oak it was racked, blended and bottled. Grapes were sourced from Malmesbury in the Swartland.
