Description

Intense fruit is complemented with tomato leaf, sumac and cedar to add a cool savoury note. Developed with bold tannins to define structure and vibrant acidity that adds tension and the promise of longevity. A smart wine that showcases its constituents with grace from start to finish.

Winemaking Notes

Bunches were hand-picked at phenolic ripeness in the cool of the morning and berry sorted. Varietals and vineyard blocks were vinified and matured separately to ensure that each component reaches its optimal potential. Each component was tasted individually and only the best was selected to make a blend that showcases the unique attributes of each cultivar.

Growing Conditions

Nudged by the Bot River Lagoon with vistas of the Atlantic Ocean, the five traditional Bordeaux varieties in this blend benefits from the diurnal range that aids even ripening and complexity. These conditions, along with meticulous canopy management, encourage the development of delicate fruit notes, fine tannin structures and bright acidities. Tapping into the diversity of slopes, soil types, row direction, cultivars and clones, the potential of these vineyards are set up to become a perfect snapshot of a vintage.
