In order to create a complex wine, grapes from three areas were combined — Bot River, for good tannin structure and colour, Franschhoek for pure berry fruit, and Stellenbosch, for the volume of the grapes and a light mintiness. The Cinsaut lowers the alcohol and promotes fruit and elegance.

Cultivar: 95% Cabernet Sauvignon 5% Cinsaut

Alcohol 13.68% vol 

Residual sugar 2.6 g/l 

Total acid 5.9 g/l

pH 3.49-

To promote complexity, grapes from different origins and clones were used. The Stellenbosch vineyards grow in high potential soils of granite and sandstone origin, the Franschhoek vineyards in sandy soils, also of granite and sandstone origin, and the Bot River vineyards in soils of shale origin. All the vineyards are trellised.

For 16 months the wine was matured in 300-litre French oak barrels – 25% new, 25% second-fill and 50% older barrels. Thereafter the different Cabernet Sauvignon lots were blended. For elegance, 5% Cinsaut was blended in. The wine was bottled in October 2018

Food Pairing

beef, lamb, pork, venison, rib-eye steak, rare beef, braised short ribs and mushroom stroganoff.
