A Southern Rhone inspired blend, and built around the incredible vineyards found all over the Western Cape. This is a floral, stony, red-fruited wine with aromas including tea leaf, dried cranberry, exotic woods, star anise, coriander seed and citrus peel, and a whiff of the apothecary’s chest. On the palate, there’s orange peel, cloves and damson plums. The wine is bright and keenly balanced, very pure in its fruit with a dusting of fine tannin to complete the picture. Its optimal drinking window is between 2021-2027.
