“This is a blend goes through a seven-stage selection process.
Blending was done with one key idea in mind: to best reflect all the individual characters; to feel “complete” to all senses.”- Johann Fourie

Intense fruit is complemented with tomato leaf, sumac and cedar to add a cool savory note, corseted with bold tannin to define structure and a vibrant acidity that adds tension and the promise of longevity. A smart wine that showcases its constituents with grace from start to finish.
This is a quintessential 5-way Bordeaux-style wine, classic but with bright fruit and freshness as expected from cool climate winemaking.
Youthful, precise and tightly framed, this wine will benefit from being decanted so that all the layers of fruit are ushered to woo your senses.
