Fresh, ripe fruit and white pepper on the nose. Mourvèdre brings a dark, rich fruit core to the classic Shiraz characteristics, with fragrance from the Carignan and the red fruit vibrancy of the Cinsault.

Sourced from vineyards in the mountainous region of Piekenierskloof, above the Citrusdal Valley, Western Cape. Vines up to 25 years old sit atop sandstone soils at an altitude of 650-700m and take in the Mediterranean style climate with its dry hot summer days, cool nights and mild, wet winters. Lo & behold, the perfect conditions for grapes to ripen slowly and develop complex and vibrant flavours.

Each variety is vinified separately. Shiraz aged with French oak during the malolactic fermentation for 6 months. All varieties fermented and aged in stainless steel for 6 months before being blended.
