Style / Colour

A combination of Paarl and Swartland fruit, naturally fermented without crushing, gives a supple and tasty Shiraz in a fresh, approachable style


Grapes are sourced from Paarl and the foothills of the Swartland mountains. These vineyards produce low yields and small concentrated berries. Hand picked and naturally fermented in stainless steel tanks. 25% whole bunch fermented as the ripe stems add to the overall tannin quality of the wine, the rest is just destemmed and not crushed. Pump overs done once daily during fermentation. 15% went into older 300 litre barrels for malolactic fermentation and a few months ageing.

Tasting Note

Ripe and fragrant with youthful cherry and redcurrant fruit and a hint of white pepper. Medium bodied and rounded with warm, red fruit flavours balanced by fresh acidity and gentle tannins and a touch of spice.
