The majority of the grapes for this blend are from the Swartland region where the varieties (Syrah, Cinsault and Carignan) thrive in the warmer climes. Ranging from 15-25 years in age, the vines are now hitting their straps and providing great flavors and full maturity. Mainly grown on granitic soils as well as some shale soils. Grapes were hand harvested towards the end of February and destemmed to tank. Gentle extraction through light pumpovers occurred for a little more than a week with ML occurring naturally in the Spring. The wine was matured in both tank and neutral barrels. The result is a lively, zippy, red wine sprinkled with some very serious notes.
