A classic example of this uniquely South African red wine. Distinctively rich ruby in colour, with bold aromatics of dark chocolate, stewed fruit, spice and hints of coffee. Silky tannins over a backing of integrated oak ensures elegance and balance, with an endless finish.

Ernst subscribes to the French philosophy that the quality of the grape is inextricably linked to the "terroir", so he travels to various regions throughout the Western Cape and handpicks his grapes in the areas where they naturally grow at their very best.
The wine vinified in the traditional manner and was then matured for nine months in second fill French oak barrels.
