Maturation for 13 months in new, first and second fill barrels. Bottled without filtration. Tasting note: Bright red colour. Flavours of fynbos, spiciness, earthiness – supported by oak. Medium structure supported by natural firm acidity. Lingering aftertaste ensuring longevity. Drink this wine in 5 years.
