Succulent red fruits with smoke and savoury character. Complex & well balanced

More Info

Tasting Notes: Deep ruby in colour with an aromatic bouquet of raspberry, red cherry and plums which are tempered by the deft use of French oak. The palate is redolent with succulent, sweet red fruit flavours and finely coated in ripe mouth filling tannins. Smokey and savoury characters from 12-18 months oak aging provide a subtle background to this complex and well balanced wine.

Founded in 1916, this wonderful estate is located below `The Little Tower of Babylon` on the steep hillside vineyards in Paarl. This prominent producer has been at the forefront of quality wine production for many years. Currently under the stewardship of third generation Michael Back, they are making considerable waves in the international market. Recently achieving carbon neutral status, the first in South Africa. They constantly strive to produce the highest quality grapes using natural and organic principles. Alicia Rechner is back at the helm as winemaker and is well supported by viticulturalist Clive Trent.
