Wine Spectator 94 points - Rich, ripe and remarkably stylish, this lets layers of plum sauce, steeped blackberry and black currant pate de fruit unfurl, while notes of ganache, espresso and graphite provide spine and direction on the finish. Presents a lovely anise echo. Drink now through 2020. From South Africa.óJ.M. (Apr 30 2014)
A blend of Syrah and Mourvedre, Southern Rhone varietals particularly suited to the arid climate of the rugged terrain of the Swartland region. Painstakingly crafted using time-honored winemaking machinery (basket press) and methodology (pigage), this wine is a bottled rendering of the very terroir from where it was created. The aim is to produce a unique and honest wine displaying minerality as apposed to more opulent flavors.
