Description

The grapes used for this very special wine originate from the same vineyard used to make the highly acclaimed Bowwood blend, previously produced by Julian Johnsen and Bruce Jack. This Southwest-facing slope is located on one of Vondeling’s highest and most temperate slopes. The roots burrow deep into nutrient poor, well weathered granite soils. This offers great consistency of concentration and aroma. The grapes are harvested at 25°Balling. Hand picking ensures that only the very best fruit enters the cellar.

A fragrant wine with abundant blackcurrant, liquorice and sweet cassis. Soft, smokey oak softens the black pepper vibrancy and lends an exotic lift to the nose. Pliant, textural and moderately tannic the wine is elegant and balanced. The fruit component is in harmony with the structure and the flavours are fresh and uplifting. Best decanted.

Food matches: Slow-roasted lamb with traditional garlic, rosemary, roast potato and vegetables. A fruit derived or berry sauce would be ideal.
