TASTING NOTES

Ageing the wine in older wooden barrels really emphasises the fruit purity of this 80/20 blend of grapes from the Paardeberg and Malmesbury. With 60% whole bunches providing some extra spice and structure, this is a scented, red cherry and raspberry fruity Grenache with savoury tannins.
