Blackberry fruit aromas with tea-leaf and cedar notes. The palate is rich and polished with dark fruit and mocha flavours and a finely balanced acidity. Long finish with fine tannins typical of a Jonkerscoek Valley wine.

Very few producers make pure Jonkershoek reds, which is a shame given how special the terrior is. This is Cabernet Sauvignon based with 15% Petit Verdot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petite Sirah, sourced from between 150 and 600 metres. Serious, dense and focused, with crunchy blackcurrant fruit, granular tannins and appealing lift and freshness. 2023-28.

18 (93 pts) ‘estate blend’ of the 4 cab blocks plus splashes petit verdot, malbec, petite sirah & merlot is sterner, more austere than 17 (94 pts), with tealeaf, pencil shavings toning down dark-fruit exuberance. Should mellow with cellaring. Stellenbosch WO.
