Grapes grown on the Simonsberg slopes in Stellenbosch, with an average age of 22 years. Elegant 2012 vintage, showing notes of supple blackcurrant, prune and perfumed spice which follows on the palate, with cedar wood, tea leaf and molasses. Balanced with a good acidity and integrated ripe tannins. Maturation potential of 20 years from vintage date.
