Notes

Croydon Vineyard Estate, settled at the foot of the Helderberg mountains, prides itself to be a unique residential Estate with vineyards and a wine cellar incorporated within the development. The Estate is situated in Somerset West in the Western Cape, South Africa.

Croydon's Covenant range showcases superior wines from their single cultivars. These wines are created from the purest grapes of the season, and left to mature into a well-balanced and full-bodied wine.

Tasting notes:
'Matured for 15 months in older oak. Red and black fruit, violets and herbs plus attractive oak- derived notes. The palate has lovely fruit expression with vibrant acidity and fine tannins. Succulent and dense, smooth textured in the best sense, the finish long and savoury.' – Christian Eedes, Prescient Cabernet Sauvignon Report 2019, 95/100

'Cabernet Sauvignon is a full-bodied red with dark fruit flavours and savory tastes from black pepper to bell pepper. Their wine is a touch fruitier than Old World Cabernet Sauvignon, with flavours of Black Cherry, Licorice and Black Pepper all wrapped together with a dash of Vanilla. It has a little less tannin and acidity.' – Winemaker
