Winemaker Notes

Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc

In winemaking, emphasis often only falls on chemistry, technique, passion and vineyards. So often the most important element of all is neglected: time. The Timeless is made in honour of this one element intrinsic to the success of any wine.

This wine offers a menthol fresh nose with the palate enriched with dark berries, cassis, some mint chocolate and also a lingering finish with well balanced tannins concentrating on the mid-palate.
