Groepsdruk | Rhône-Style Red


This is a barrel selection of the most outstanding wine of a specific vintage. The knockout nose delivers blackberry, dark chocolate, leather, spiced meat, minerals and hints of truffle. Seamless, harmonious, dense and in superb balance with an elegant concentration of all the flavours. Finishes with supple, ripe tannins and impressive hang time. A delight that will age gracefully and deliver pleasure every time! ~ Dr Winifred E Bowman ~ Cape Wine Master ~ Wine, Food and Lifestyle Writer

Sommelier note: Spring game (guinea fowl) slow roasted/braised. Waterblommetjies with lamb’s tails.

Winemakers note: The prestigious General Smuts Trophy awarded to the best single wine of a specific year in South Africa is a testimony to our great reds. Winning the trophy motivated me to craft this extremely limited release wine. Pick of the crop fruit, minimal interference from technology and mechanization and the best French oak barrel for maturation.
