The Introduction

Red

2017

This wine is a blend of 46% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet franc and 4% Petit Verdot from specially selected vineyard sites around the Stellenbosch region.

This wine has a stunning garnet colour with a bright ruby red rim. The aromas on the nose are that of red and black bramble fruits, with hints of tobacco leaf and cedar wood. The wine has a smooth entry onto the palate with fresh berry fruit and fresh herbs dominating the flavours. All leading to textured mid-palate and a smooth finish with fine grained tannins.

Food Pairing
This wine is great companion at a braai before, during and after.
