Region: W.O Simonsberg-Stellenbosch, South Africa
Varieties: 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot.
Tasting Note: Rich and velvety, this is a tightly knit wine built to last yet accessible now thanks to its well-rounded tannins. Concentrated dark fruits (blackcurrants, cassis) are lifted by a slight tea-leaf herbaceousness and plenty of wood spice (sandalwood, cigar box, graphite). There are also some savoury hints of olive tapenade, particularly on the lingering finish, which combined with fresh acid balance suggest improvement in bottle for at least a decade.
Technical: Alcohol: 14.5% alc./vol., Sugar: 2.1g/l (Dry), Acidity: 3.76 pH, Total Acid: 5.5g/l
Awards: Tim Atkin MW SA 2022 Report - 93 points
