This beautifully assembled blend displays spicy notes and a range of fresh dark berries. It is supported by a good structure of sweet,
harmonious tannins with a touch of oak.

The vineyards lie in deep red soils ensuring excellent water-retention and adding structure and fullness to the wines.

After crushing the grapes were inoculated with known yeast strains. A controlled pump-over schedule was followed to extract intense colour without harsh tannins. The wine was fermented for 10 days on the skins followed by malolactic fermentation in the tank. The wine was matured on French oak staves for 10 months.

Bud break were 7 to 10 days earlier compared to the 2019 vintage, giving rise to earlier flowering and harvest. Good widespread rains at the beginning of November had a very positive eect on set and
was a contributing factor to a better season. The cool summer conditions gave the 2020 season a start with a slower ripening period and grapes reached phenolic ripeness with good acidity and lower pH levels.

A perfect match for steak and pork.

I bought this wine on a special as I enjoy your Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon. It was an excellent choice! Will definitely buy it again.

I never knew you can have Syrah and Malbec together! I am super impressed with this wine – its easy drinking and has soft smooth tannins. Im coming back for more. Highly recommend it
