Description

Tasting Notes

“This wine displays notes of graphite and dark berry fruits, with subtle supportive oak undertones of heady and evocative Asian spices and black olive notes. With a supple tannin frame and a core of minerality, this full-bodied complex wine has a beautiful balance between fruit and oak showcasing a structure that will allow it to age extremely well”. Johnnie Calitz, winemaker.

Food Pairing

Best enjoyed with roast meats, venison, ostrich and umami flavours.
