Grand Vin is a Bordeaux-style blend with complex layers. Aromas of red fruit, subtle black whiffs of cassis with integrated Tobacco and a hint of cedar, perfectly rounded with a fruity mulberry in the after-taste. The ripe tannins ensure a firm, elegant structure. A sincere wine that will complement well-prepared red meat dishes.

The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grow on unirrigated bush-vines in the Darling area. Well-drained soil types and cool, south-facing slopes, unexposed to direct afternoon sunlight, create ideal growing conditions for this variety. The Merlot and Petit Verdot grapes are grown in the Stellenbosch area. The Malbec grapes are grown in Bot river. Growing against slopes facing False Bay, the grapes are exposed to the cool sea breeze that contributes to a longer ripening period, enhancing flavour development.

After fermentation the grapes were pressed and malolactic fermentation was completed in 225-litre French oak barrels. 40% of the maturation took place in first-fill French oak barrels, and the remainder in second- and third-fill barrels. The components were kept separately for 16-18 months. Thereafter, blending took place, followed by bottling of the wine 3 months later.
