Tasting note

A Cape favourite, this Rhônish-style, mostly syrah blend, is steeped in rich chocolatey fruit concentration. (Anthony Rose, independent.co.uk, March 11, 2016)
LCBO
Cherry-red in colour, this red boasts a intense nose exuding woody, empyreumatic, floral and fruity aromas. Discover this medium-bodied wine expressing refreshing acidity and offering a broad texture and fleshy tannins. It also unveils a medium mouthfeel that leads into a medium finish.
SAQ
Classically styled with integrated tannins and balanced acidity to ensure a long, succulent and textured finish.
Liquor Marts
This wine has massive aromas of floral perfume with underlying redcurrant, cedar, black pepper, coriander spice and hints of Turkish Delight. Ripe red fruits carry through onto a palate layered with marzipan, minerals and a superb velvety structure. Textured, composed and seamless in style.
