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 2019:
"Generous in its dark-fruit medley, creamy texture, allowing for youthful enjoyment, but 2016 has the telling firm structure of a cab-led Bordeaux-style red in classic mould. 87pts"
