Delicate aromas of blackberries, blackcurrant, forest floor and cedarwood. Classically structured mouthfeel with a supple texture, complex layers and a focused linearity on the finish. Lively and complex and long aftertaste. Grapes sourced from Stellenbosch, blend of 70% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Malbec. Matured on 225 liter French oak for 18 months. Ageing potential of at least 15 years from vintage!
Enjoy with baked or grilled red meat or ground game, with spicy sauces.
