Fine tannins with a succulent ripeness and concentration to the fruit profile define this as a bolder vintage kept in balance by a savoury edge from the vineyard's cool climate origins. Plum, liquorice and confected blackcurrant on the nose along with the signature sweet spice of cinnamon and some star anise. The palate is silky and supple with red and black cherries combining with fresh acidity for a long and linear finish. 2017 was a highly regarded vintage for Cape reds and this is a another reason why.
Wine was awarded 4.5 stars in the 2022 Platters edition and rated 91 in the 2022 International Wine and Spirit Competition.
