'53% Syrah, 23% Tinta Barocca, 12% Cinsault and 12% Mourvèdre. The nose is fragrant and enticing with red and black berries along with fynbos, earth and spice. The palate comes across as well balanced and carefully judged – medium bodied, bright acidity and fine tannins.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 93/100

'André Bruyns makes this stylish Swartland red from an intriguing combination of Syrah and 47% Tinta Barocca, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. Very lightly wooded, with evident whole bunch texture and spices, plenty of stony grip and a combination of plum, raspberry and bramble fruit. Drink 2022-26.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 91/100

'This is the second of our “canvas wines”. The wine is stretched across multiple vineyards, and it remains our focus in terms of red wine. This blend continues to grow in terms of vineyards and varieties as we stretch our reach further across the Swartland. The Red 2020 has great structure while showing red and black fruit with trademark Swartland spice. This vintage contains 53% Syrah, 23% Tinta Barocca, 12% Cinsault & 12% Mourvèdre.' – André Bruyns, Winemaker
