combined with floral notes and fynbos nuances.

Full-bodied wine shows freshly crushed black pepper aromas with
hints of cinnamon and cloves. Juicy palate of brambly red fruit and
well-integrated vanilla tones.

A characterful wine with dark plums and black pepper notes integrated
with spicy wood nuances. It has a ripe and rounded mouthfeel, which ends
with a fruit-driven finish.

The nose is wide-ranging with upfront berry fruits and a lavender-perfumed
background supported by sweet, warm spice. Wonderfully structured tannins on the palate reveal a well-balanced wine.
