Paarl. Medium to full bodied with spicy black cherry and black berry fruit, chewy savoury mid palate and evident wood flavors. The wine has a well- rounded mid palate with creamy berry flavours which carry through to the finish of the wine where they are supported by soft tannins. Most of the grapes were destalked and fermented in tanks with French oak staves, with malolactic and maturation being completed on staves. Aprox 20% of the wine was fermented in small open fermenters and hand punched before being pressed off into small French oak barrels of varying ages. This is a Rhone blend component from Agter Paarl and includes Shiraz, mourvedre and cinsault which give this wine some additional spice, juiciness and wood.
