Winemaker Notes

Made from Paarl and Swartland grapes, the Mischief Maker is a Shiraz dominated blend assembled each year with different proportions of Grenache and Mourvèdre.
It is hand-crafted in the same manner as the Cabernet and as with the Cabernet, I am trying to make wine as naturally as possible to showcase the fruit from the vineyard.
The Mischief Maker sports black savoury fruit, molasses, with a backbone of herbs. A ripe, unctuous generous palate, with high fruit intensity and great length.
We all have a mischievous friend that this wine is named after!
