Tasting Notes:

With much forethought and careful tasting we are constantly on the lookout for something special and unique. Iconic winemaker Ken Forrester has set his sights firmly on producing a great Mediterranean styled blend from the finest grapes available in the Cape.

The Cape Region is specifically defined as a Mediterranean climate. These three grapes have stood the test of time in the Rhone and show fantastic results in our ocean influenced micro climate. Mourvèdre (earthy) with a splash of Grenache (fruity) here and a dash of Shiraz (spicy) there was blended by Ken to create this incredible wine.

The vineyard determines the quality of the fruit, the power of the concentration, the ripening ability and the depth of flavour. The fruit must be viewed as one views a shiny big red apple in a supermarket, perfect!

Matured in 2nd fill French oak barrels for 18 months.

A hand-picked selection of the first ripest fruit, taken to the cellar and cool soaked prior to fermentation.

Food pairing

Serve with grills, lamb and beef. Beautiful with Osso Buco.
