Why Buy Me

90 Points Decanter: “A blend of predominantly Syrah, with Grenache, Cinsault, Cabernet and a splash of Viognier, sourced from Swartland, Piekenierskloof, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch, this wine is no shrinking violet and enjoys a loyal fanbase who expect it to deliver the big, smooth, rich - even chocolatey! - flavours it is known for. This latest vintage is more of the same, with violet-tinged black fruits alongside coffee, chocolate and some woody touches, balanced out by bright acidity.” Oct 2019

Winemaker's Pitch

16 Points Jancis Robinson: “Mid-deep purple. Ripe, slightly jammy berry fruits with a touch of dark chocolate and a floral note. Velvety, with a rich mouthfeel, and a blend of sweet fruit and savoury spice. Good length.” Dec 2019
