The wine is a blend of Syrah (60%), Grenache (30%) and Petit Syrah (10%). 50% of the Syrah originates from Elim and 50% from Franschhoek, the Grenache is from Walker Bay and the Petit Syrah from Franschhoek. After 40 months’ maturation the wines were blended and then bottled during October 2016. Only 3 300 bottles were produced.
Personal food pairing: This complex Syrah-based blend is the ideal partner to red meat in most of its forms. With its well-structured tannins, this wine beautifully complements the intensity of hard cheese.
