'This complex, full-bodied red wine is a stellar wine fit for any celebration. Aromas of red plum, blueberry perfumes with hints of sweet tobacco and cedarwood shavings. A fusion of dark fruits, cherries and cassis with a velvety texture creates this soft, multi-layered wine with well-rounded tannins and a lingering finish. Grapes are picked from eight different vineyard blocks. Matured in a combination of 40% new and 60% second- and third-fill 300 litre oak barrels for 18 months before being bottled and matured for three months prior to release.' – Winemaker

Tasting notes on the 2018 vintage:
'Intense, concentrated and deeply coloured, this pure Cabernet Sauvignon from the up-andcoming Simonsberg-Paarl area has stylish 40% new wood, mint, cassis and blueberry fruit flavours and supple, textured tannins. Very drinkable. Drink 2022-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 90/100
