The Introduction

Red

2018

This wine is a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cinsault, 14% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet franc from specially selected vineyard sites around the Stellenbosch region.

This wine has a stunning depth of colour with an intense garnet hue. The aromas emanating from the glass are reminiscent of red and black bramble fruit with hints of Karoo bush and cedar. The palate mirrors the aromas on the nose with a stunning sweet red fruit core and a dry textured herbal character leading to a clarity in the mouth on the finish.

Food Pairing
This wine is great companion at a braai before, during and after. Pairs especially well with herb crusted Lamb chops.
