Tasting Notes

Classic, elegant and layered with concentrated red fruit and accents of mint, pencil shavings and oak spice. It shows a powerful fruit expression on the mid palate with savoury mineral and smokey undertones and well integrated cedary oak nuances. Firm yet polished tannins give a textured palate and a finish of lingering intensity.

Food Pairing

Lamb, beef, venison, strong cheeses.

Cellaring Notes

Vinification

All grapes used to make this estate wine come from vines situated against the slopes of the Dassenberg Mountain planted in deep decomposed granite soils called Oakleaf. These Rickety Bridge slopes are North and Westerly facing. Well manicured and settled vines yielding 6 tonnes/ha
