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.

Tasting Note: One of the very first Rhône style blends in South Africa. This elegant Rhône blend displays Old World Style with New World fruit. Hint of Grenache’s earthy rusticity and Shiraz’s noble spice with hints of nutmeg and salty black olive on the finish. Balanced with soft integrated tannins.
Rhône red blend: 42% Shiraz, 40% Mourvèdre, 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.
