Intense ruby red colour. Rich blackcurrant and cherries on the nose. Intense dark fruit flavours on the palate that combines well with sweet vanilla oak aromas. Ideal wine for Indian spicy dishes or a well matured steak.

This wine is made from a single bushvine vineyard on our farm, Klein Amoskuil in Malmesbury. These unirrigated bushvines were planted in 1997 on Koffieklip soil.

The bunches were fermented in 5-ton open concrete fermenters with manual punch-down of the skins twice a day, extracting deep colour and flavour. The wine was pressed off and transferred to tight-grain American oak barrels for malolactic fermentation, of which half were seasoned barrels. The wine matured for 16 months before bottling.
