Platinum – South African Wine Index
88 Points – Tim Atkin
Wine has a dark red colour with a vibrant red rim. A lively wine with bright fruit. Sweet notes of blueberries, black and red cherries, violets, and spice aromas with hints of pepper and vanilla. On entry the wine is very enticing with soft rich tannins. A full rich flavoured wine, with an elegant finish.
Varietals harvested, fermented and matured separately. Each component picked at optimal ripeness. With both Shiraz and Mourvedre we used 10% whole bunch grapes during fermentation. Only 300 liter barrels were used during the 18 month maturation. Combination of French, American and Hungarian oak was used to add extra complexity to the blend. 15% new barrels were used to optimize fruity aromas of the wine.
Very deep ruby red colour. Cherries, raspberries, plums, and spice with subtle lavender and rosemary undertones. Different layers of aromas with a good balance between fruit and spicy oak aromas. Wine has a fruity entry with cherries, raspberries, and blackcurrants. Good depth of flavors with balanced oak influence. Shows a good dry but soft finish with juicy tannins on the middle palate. Mouth-filling tannin structure that will develop nicely with proper cellaring.
