Review
An expressive nose with intense dark cherry spiced raspberry, black fruit and violet-infused perfume. With time another dimension of rusticity and fleshiness is revealed with underlying earthy notes. The palate is firmly structured, yet elegant, with supple tannins and spicy oak aromas covering a rounded mid-palate that reveals purity of fruit and a lifted freshness. Classically styled with integrated tannins and balanced acidity to ensure a long, succulent and textured finish.

Wine maker notes
By blending the best components to create a wine that is true in character and consistent in quality we were rewarded with the 2009 Syrah/Viognier. The uber-ripe Viognier were blended to the Shiraz to add perfume to the spice. After the Syrah spent nine months in French oak it was racked, blended and bottled. Grapes were sourced from Malmesbury in the Swartland.
