Analysis

Alc/Vol 14.0%  |  pH 3.57  |  R.S. 2.4g/l  |  TA 5.0g/l

Vinification

The grapes were hand harvested from north western slopes on the Groenberg, destemmed and gently crushed and cold soaked for a week. Optimal extraction and expression of typical red fruit notes was ensured by performing 4 pump overs a day.  The wine was aged in French oak for a year.

 

Style

An opulent wine with notes of mulled spices, dates, ripe strawberries, raspberry and a hint of cedar on the nose. The palate is fresh with great acidity, supported by deliciously supple tannins and intense red berries.

 

Serving suggestion

Best served with casseroles and game dishes or as an alternative try it with dark chocolate truffles.
