Mouthwatering juicy plum and sweet fruit aromas are complemented by hints of tobacco. On the palate, mouth-filling cherry and tobacco flavors are soft and accessible with a lingering finish. Aged 10 months in oak. A unique hybrid grape from Pinot Noir and Cinsault.
South Africa is increasingly responsible for high-demand, high-quality wines—a blessing to put the country back on the international wine map. Wine production is mainly situated around Cape Town, where the climate is generally warm to hot. But the Benguela Current from Antarctica provides brisk ocean breezes necessary for steady ripening of grapes. Similarly, cooler, high-elevation vineyard sites throughout South Africa offer similar, favorable growing conditions.
