WO Stellenbosch. A combination of 70% Helderberg fruit, rest Bottelary/Devon Valley fruit, crushed and cold macerated for up to two days then fermented with regular punch downs before being matured in 90% French, 5% American and 5% Hungarian oak for 12 months. Hint of reduction on the nose which shows pepper, smoke, black olive and crushed herbs. On the palate, delicious red fruit, luscious and ripe, with crunchy fruit tannins and a hint of smoke. Evenly oaked, with lovely depth, character and persistence. Needs time to evolve.
