It is a traditional Rhone Blend consisting of three Mediterranean varieties, Syrah, Mourvèdre, and a dash of Viognier (a la Cote Rotie). 2020 was a great year for South African winegrowing across the board.

This made for some big, expressive Red wines like the one you see here today. It’s a total steal for the price.
The nose is intense, dark, and brooding with an abundance of black fruit aromas and scents of violets, pepper, and cured meat with gentle whiffs of dried coriander and tar. The savory, gamey smell and dark berries of the nose follow through onto the palate with notes of licorice, cardamom, and hints of cranberry, red currant, and cloves. The mid-palate is full and creamy with supple tannins and well-integrated acidity as well as spicy undertones from the subtle oak present.
