All the fruit was hand-picked, and whole bunch pressed. Fermentation and ageing took place in barrel and tank. The main component is Cabernet Sauvignon (51%) followed by Cabernet Franc (18%), Malbec (17%), and Petit Verdot (14%).
Delicate violets and black fruit on both the nose and mouth, with hints of vanilla and tobacco leaf. Fine velvety tannins. Refined and elegantly lithe. Restrained power with a fynbos finish. Bright acidity, juicy palate with gentle but still youthful tannins.
Angela Lloyd's Tasting note in Platter 2020:
"Cabernet-based 2017 has dashes cab franc, petit verdot & malbec adding further satisfaction. Fruit richness allows for approachability, refreshing fine tannins ensure potential. 86pts"
