Peppery spice, blue and black fruit with additional allure of a brush of dried herb and fynbos on the nose. Corduroy softness and mouthfeel is apparent on entry. That texture grows, as does the fruit intensity, into a fantail of flavour, ripe plum, blueberry and a hint of licorice and herbs. Buttressing that ripeness is the structure lent by well integrated oak and a sinewy muscularity and leashed power. Good frame and harmony – nothing is dominant. Long, rich tail with spice and fynbos on the end.

Vigorous fine bead with green apple, lemon, yeast and fresh sea breeze aromas. The palate echoes those aromatic notes with its crisp lemon freshness and green apple vibrance that is brushed with grapefruit and citrus zest. A gentle, creamier biscuit and toast note then develops. Elegant and well structured with good fruit, acidity and lees harmony. The finish is long, dry and crisply detailed.

The palate is at first restrained before revealing juicy red plums and ripe cherries brushed with peppery spice. Layers of fruit are intertwined with cedar and oak tannin, which is well integrated and poised. The wine appears light, but with time, it gradually reveals its refined depths. Rewardingly long aftertaste.

Instant seduction of violet, blackberry, cherry, cocoa, spice and fruitcake perfume. Black Forest gateau in one whiff. Those same ripe and rich flavours are found in the mouth which is soft, rounded, plush and embracing – but with a dry tail. Supple, textured and elegant it offers up concentration, structure as well as a velvety appeal. Layered, nuanced, cohesive and rewarding.
