    R 399.00

    A very special Bordeaux Blend comprised of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot & 14% Cabernet Franc all hand harvested, selecting only the best fruit. Despite good rainfall, the region was still affected by the preceding drought and realised a much smaller crop for the second year in a row. Initially, there was a perfect start to the season with excellent weather, but that changed at the end of February to cold, wet weather. This resulted in wines with lower alcohol but still packed with concentration, due to the low yielding vines.

    What can you expect?

    This blend shows notes of Black Cherry, Cigar box, pencil shavings and a hint of black currant. The palate delivers loads of black cherries and dark chocolate. The tannin structure is refined but noticeable, resulting in a long dry savoury finish.

    Food pairing?

    Lamb, chicken such as coq au vin, dark chocolate, red meat dishes

    Aging potential?

    This wine is made to enjoy now but keeps well for 10+ years. Buy 2 cases and open a bottle every year to compare its evolution.
