The quest to understand the name of this wine, as well as the wine itself, is now the stuff of legend. While we are not about to reveal all, we can say that the style of this wine is a reflection of our belief that the Cape, with its Mediterranean climate, is eminently suited to blended reds. The make-up of this wine is tweaked from vintage to vintage, to better reflect the season and the character of the ancient vines that are such an integral part of the wine's charm and personality.
This wine reveals the typical Malmesbury Syrah profile on the nose, with intense spicy notes supported by ripe plum, black fruit and violet aromas. The wine has a grippy acidity and well-integrated tannins, with a nicely-textured and rounded mouth feel. The long, elegant and succulent finish, with superb structure from the Cabernet Sauvignon, leads us to believe that this wine has at least 8 years of ageing potential.
