'This wine commemorates the lifework of my father, O.T. Venter Senior. A mentor, advisor, oracle, a guiding light and inspiration to family and friends.' – Ockert Tobias Venter, Owner

Tasting notes:
'Produced from Cabernet Franc with 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, this ambitiously priced red is very much aimed at the kind of people who buy Cru Classé Bordeaux. Elegant, fresh and stylish, with fine-boned tannins, impressive underlying concentration and a minty undertone. Drink 2022-29.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 93/100

'Beautifully precise aromatics offering a sense of unmistakeable terroir and luxury. Earthy, mineral aromas with some herbal freshness mingle with creamy, crushed raspberry and cherry, opening up to reveal notes of violet petal perfume. Similarly elegant yet powerful on the palate with lashings of dense, silky tannins masterfully joined by plush red fruit, showing beautiful vibrancy and concentration. Nuances, textures and layers of brilliance with tobacco leaf and some graphite, offering a savoury, mineral edge and dry finish. An utterly exemplary wine, representative of a truly fabled vintage.' – Winemaker
