This wine will improve with a few years of bottle age.
From our pack vineyards in Paarl and the Swartland. A portion of the grapes for this wine are sourced off Kasteelsig vineyard in Swartland, which is organically certified. The rest are from Leeuwenkuil and Langvlei farms.
The grapes were hand- picked and crushed into small open fermenters hand punched 4 to 5 times daily during fermentation and pressed when just dry. The wine was matured in French, American and Hungarian oak barrels for 13 months. Roughly 20% of the barrels were new.
This finessed red will partner well with modern fusion cooking. The wine is best paired with beef or lamb dishes such as Thai style red beef curry or a nice South African lamb bobotie.
