Tasting Note: One of the very first Rh么ne style blends in South Africa. This elegant Rh么ne blend displays Old World Style with New World fruit. Hint of Grenache鈥檚 earthy rusticity and Shiraz鈥檚 noble spice with hints of nutmeg and salty black olive on the finish. Balanced with soft integrated tannins.

Rh么ne red blend: 42% Shiraz, 40% Mourv猫dre, 18% Grenache

Serve with roasts, duckling and full flavoured Mediterranean dishes as well as lamb or grilled meat and vegetables.

Yield: 8 tons per hectare, trellised vineyard

Fermented in open tanks with gentle extraction by pumping over and then pressed and racked into second and third fill French oak barrels for 18 months. This adds complexity and structure to the soft natural tannins.

Reserve Range

Here we are solely responsible for the cultivation of the vines and selection of the fruit, mostly from our family property in Stellenbosch, just 5 kms from the cool Atlantic and in the sheltered lee of the majestic Helderberg mountain. This range includes older vineyards, showing more depth of character and concentration. Ideal food wines, with structure and elegance.
