Tasting Notes

“Vibrant red fruit combined with plum and vanilla undertones and hints of tobacco leaf and bell pepper, seamlessly intermingle on this distinctive wine. The palate is brimming with dark fruit and peppermint chocolate; refined tannins and a velvety touch lead to a long aftertaste . An absolutely stunning wine, complete with balance and sophisticated elegance”. Johnnie Calitz (winemaker)

Wine of Origin

Stellenbosch

In the Vineyard

The 2018 vintage was a challenging one. Dry conditions helped to ensure excellent grape quality, with smaller berry sizes bringing concentrated flavour and colour. Sensible irrigation, minimal vineyard intervention and soils with excellent water holding capacity, aided these Banghoek Cabernet Franc vines to avoid water stress, and helped us in producing another fantastic harvest off this elevated mountain Vineyard.

In the Cellar

Hand-picked and hand sorted grapes were fermented naturally in small open top tanks and then barrel matured for 16 months in 225 litre barriques. Gentle handling and absolute attention throughout the wine making process ensured the wine was kept as natural as possible with frequent punch downs and skin contact of 30 days.
