A relatively easy growing season with moderate weather throughout, following a cold wet winter. An exceptionally warm early spring ensured a successful budburst and flowering with good even shoot growth. Above average rain at the end of October kept soil moisture optimum during the later hot summer. Gale force winds in January caused damage to some of our exposed mountainous vineyards, reducing yields a little. An excellent early harvest with full bodied, generous wines with intense, complex fruit flavours.
Bright deep youthful red colour. Dark pepper like spices and blueberry fruit nose with a lovely fynbos, indigenous herbal aspect. Big, complex fruit loaded palate restrained with lovely acidity and fine tannins. Lingering finish. Delicious with a slow roasted pork belly and a match for some sweetness and spice too as it’s quite a bold, but fine wine. Drink 2024 to 2035.
