From the Bottelary hills, Banhoek Valley and Swartland, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and, for the first time this vintage, Cinsault; it showcases the powerful structure of Cabernet, the supple midpalate and dense fruit of Cinsault and delicate aromatics of Petit Verlot, with exceptional balance. Expect bold red and black fruit and Swartland-Cinsault-typical savoury spice, sure to benefit from a number of years of cellaring. This vintage has been described as perhaps "more South African" in style than the previous and the change from Merlot in the blend to Cinsault, has changed the flavour profile quite significantly.
