  • £9.75

Tasting Note: An intense, rich blend using a powerful grape combination: Pinotage

providing dark, spicy fruit, Shiraz lending its vibrant perfume, while the addition

of Malbec creates body and structure to give a richly fl avoured fi nish. Serve with

barbequed meats, cured sausages and lightly spiced stews.

Blend: 50% Pinotage, 35% Shiraz, 15% Malbec

Alcohol: 14.5%

Vineyard: Each grape variety came from separate blocks with a vine age ranging

from six to ten years of age. The Pinotage came from a site with slight elevation to

provide fresh fruit characters whilst the Malbec came from sites selected to give it a

dark fruit profi le.

Winemaking Note: The grapes were crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks,

remaining on their skins for seven days with a pump-over every three hours. The wine

then spent a short period of ageing with oak before bottling.”
