Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) The quest to understand the name of this wine and the wine itself is now the stuff of legend – it's even launched a graphic novel (see here). While we are not about to reveal all, we can say that the style of the wine is a reflection of our belief that the Cape, with its Mediterranean climate, is eminently suited to blended reds. The make-up of this wine is tweaked from vintage to vintage to best reflect the season and the ancient vines of great character that are an integral part of the wine's charm and personality.

Winemaker's Notes

Stout lovers rejoice! This is your wine. Intense spicy notes on the nose which is supported by ripe plum, black fruit and violet aromas. The wine has a grippy acidity and well integrated tannins with a well textured and rounded mouth feel. Long, elegant and succulent finish with superb structure from the Cabernet Sauvignon.

    You have to try it. Do not let the strong nose deter you. If you loke cabernet you will love this wine.
