2014 John Platter's Wine Guide - 3½ stars
A down to earth, easy drinking red which is soft and smooth. Merlot based, the nose has a faint touch of white pepper, 'fynbos' and spice with abundant red berry and rich plum flavours on the palate. A value for money, medium bodied wine that's perfect to share and everyone has a favourite Old Man in their life!
40% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Shiraz, 10% Cabernet Franc

In The Vineyard
With every new vintage we need to improve the quality of this red blend. The effort to produce beautiful ripe fruit and the selection therefore becomes a passion.
In The Cellar
During winemaking the cultivars were kept apart and aged in third fill 300 litre French oak and in stainless steel tanks with staves. After 8 months the different components were blended after rigorous tasting sessions with our Old Man, Peter Pentz.
