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.

Winemaker’s Note

Beautiful on both nose and palate with hints of mint and violets, ripe raspberries, red cherry and black-currant. Subtle oak, with an intriguing complexity. This wine has a textured mid-palate outlining finely grained tannins, framing concentrated fruit flavours. This is an honest expression of an individual grape made into a delightful wine.
