Winemaker: Louis Nel. Earthy notes of dried savory herbs, cigar box spice, singed fynbos and oak lead the charge on the nose of this wine, with supporting fruit tones of black cherry, berry and currant grounding the core. The mouthfeel is lush and dense, with a crushed-velvet texture that frames the rich black fruit. The finish is long and evolving, starting with a jammy preserve flavor that transitions to chocolate-covered cherry and finally lands on spicy notes of charred espresso bean, toasted oak and sweet spice. Drink 2020–2025.
