Awards/Reviews

4 ½ Stars 2020 Platter’s South African Wine Guide

Bordeaux-style blend is rounded & expressive in 16 (91 pts) with generous plum & mulberry flavours, fine structure for long life.

Winemaker Notes

This Bordeaux-style red blend exhibits a deep, garnet centre, with bright hues on the rim. The rich, perfumed blackcurrant and cassis is enhanced by layers of lead pencil shavings and subtle cedar oak nuances. With more aeration, the wine shows red cherry and mulberry fruit, fine-grained tannins and a beautiful balance. Remarkably accessible now, but it will continue to open and mature over time.

 

Style: Dry red Bordeaux-style blend.
Wood maturation:17 Months oaking. 100% French Oak. New Wood 51%, 2nd fill 25%, other 24%.
Cellaring Potential: The Tiara has the body and structure to improve with cellaring up to 2023, but should last much longer. Due to the elegance and fruit intensity it is also delicious to drink now.
