Picked later than the Project Z Grenache and blended with some grapes from high-altitude Piekenierskloof, this has also more structure and tannins, with plum, clove and black cherry fruit and a hint of oak spice. 2022-27


Winemaker Notes

This is a very fragrant and delicate wine but with amazing concentration and depth of flavour. A bouquet of fresh strawberries and dried rose petal gives way to a dancing palate full of fresh berries with zippy acidity and flavours of wild bramble with hints of all-spice that are perfectly balanced with a fine and supple tannin structure. On the lingering finish other subtle nuances start to show too. A delicious wine that can be enjoyed with a variety of foods, for the adventurous serve lightly chilled with salmon or simply enjoy with a variety of charcuterie.
