Made from a blend of 85% Pinotage and 15% Syrah. Certified organic grapes from the Kasteelsig vineyard owned by Billy Hughes. The site is primarily red Glenrosa soil with some Oakleaf - both shale rich duplex soils, and these vines are not irrigated. Yields are round 6.5 tons to the hectare. Also sustainably-farmed grapes from Leeuwenkuil’s top Swartland vineyards. Grapes were hand-picked into small baskets and taken to the cellar. After four days cold-soaking, approximately 30% was whole-bunch fermented in open bins and hand punched four times a day. The rest was fermented in a rototank. No commercial yeast was used as these grapes ferment well with their natural yeast. The wine matured in a mixture of French and American oak barrels for 18 months, 25% new wood. A total of 9,600 bottles were produced. Bottled at 14.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Beautiful fruit concentration, with notes of red berries and black cherries. Subtle notes of white pepper.

Palate: Follows through from the nose, you're greeted by notes of black cherries and red berries. Mid-palate reveals the elegant ripe tannins.

Finish: Great balance and structure, lingering notes of sweet spices and white pepper.
