(2019) This wine spent 12 months in 300 and 500-litre French oak barrels, 10% new. The fruit comes from Stellebosch and Paarl, and the main component is Syrah (53%), the oldest is 25-year-old bush vine Cinsault (19%). It is meaty and has a touch of cool climate herbaceous lift, pepper, spice and a bright overall picture. Lovely texture and ripe succulent damson and berries. The finish is rich with tobacco and spice, but such a solid fruit concentration.
