The Royal Nymphomane is the pinnacle of site expression from cool climate, dry land farmed vineyards. Meticulous detail to viticulture of specially selected blocks, the wine are handcrafted to reflect terroir and elegance. Made from an equal blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The varieties are grown in the Hemel en Aarde Ridge and Valley, in close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. All grapes varieties were harvested separately by hand enjoying cool early morning temperatures. After overnight cold storage they were de-stemmed and crushed into red ferment tanks. Cold maceration occurred for 3 days. The wine was then fermented under controlled temperatures until dry. The skins were then lightly pressed and the wine racked into a selection of French oak barriques (25% new barrels) for 12 months ageing after which the wine was blended and aged for a further 12 months in third-fill barrels and bottled at 15%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Rich dark fruits, cassis and plums, dried herbs such oregano and thyme, cedar oak and hints of tobacco and leather.

Palate: Very opulent with lovely fruit forward entry, blueberry, mulberry and cassis. Juicy mid-palate with subtle tones of sweet spice.

Finish: Ripe tannins, with an elegant long finish. Lingering notes of cedar oak and dried herbs.
