WINEMAKING / MATURATION

Bunches and berries were sorted carefully by hand, with crushing and destemming delicately handled. Juice was inoculated with BDX Red yeast, and fermentation temperatures were kept under 28°C. Wines were matured for 19 months in 300l French oak barrels. Wood regime: 40% new oak, 15% 3rd fill barrels, 30% 4th fill barrels and 15% 5th fill barrels.

TASTING NOTES

A deep plum colour meets the eye. Intense, concentrated black fruit aromas on the nose, with a hint of nutty oak. The palate is packed with more rich, succulent, dark berries with an abundance of blackcurrant. The wine shows a lovely extraction, which provides a solid core and a rich, smooth finish.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

The 2015 vintage is widely considered the best ever for South African wines. Cooler conditions throughout February allowed for slow, even ripening early in the season, contributing towards colour and flavour development – especially in red cultivars. Warm, dry conditions before harvest accelerated ripening, producing grapes of the highest quality. Judicious irrigation and soils with good water holding capacity ensured wines avoided water stress.
