Winemaker: Carel Nel. This interesting blend of 41% Touriga Francesa, 39% Shiraz, 15% Touriga National and 5% Tinta Barocca is yummy and attractive. Fruit-forward notes of jammy boysenberry, blueberry and blackberry abound on the nose and mouth, laced by hints of sweet bacon and milk chocolate. The palate is plush but not overdone, with medium tannins and good overall balance. Enjoy now through 2021.
