  • The Blend 2022

    The Blend is part of the Gabriëlskloof Estate range of wines, together with our Rosebud, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc and Syrah. This range offers a selection of boutique-style wines that always over-deliver on quality and value.

    Climate & Viticulture

    The 2022 harvest benefitted from good winter rains and full dams, which set the tone for a cool, even growing season.


    Following careful hand-picking, bunches were destemmed and transferred to fermentation tanks using a gravity system, allowing for whole berry fermentation. Naturally fermented and aged 18 months in older French barrique. The components of the wine are: Cabernet Sauvignon (69%), Cabernet Franc (18%), Merlot (8%) and Malbec (5%).

    Tasting note

    A decadent yet lively vintage defined by aromas of crushed red and black fruits, sweet spice and cocoa nibs. Black cherry, plum and liquorice lead on the palate as olive tapenade, Black Forest cake and tobacco linger. This density of fruit is supported by powdery tannins, fresh acidity and a long, textured finish.
