Description

Tasting Notes

“Deep, dark red colour in the glass, with complex aromas of blackberry, dark fruits, hints of rich, warm wood spices and perfumed notes on the nose. The exceptionally rich palate shows beautiful elegance with a tautness between firm tannins and supple fruit. Robust flavours of black plum, rhubarb and tobacco mix with dark chocolate and black pepper leading to a powerful full-bodied finish. The natural layered structure of this deeply flavoured wine is a facet of Tannat which will ensure it ages beautifully”. Johnnie Calitz (winemaker)

Wine of Origin

Simonsberg-Paarl

In the Vineyard

Tannat grows happily in gravelly soil, just the type of soil we
have in abundance on parts of our farm. The subsoils are
comprised of clay and granite deposits – the clay cools and
retains moisture whilst the granite provides great minerality and
backbone to the wine. 2018 was an excellent vintage for the
growing of Simonsberg red wines.

In the Cellar

Tannat has intriguing features which, under careful guidance
from the vineyard through the cellar, are revealed in a firmly
textured, bold and scented wine. The grapes were fermented in
a small and single lot, handled with minimal intervention. This
wine spent 24 months in 2nd fill French Oak barrels, left on fine
lees with no racking or movement during the maturation time.
