Additional Information
  • Biography Shiraz   :  A spicy aroma with hints of chocolate, coffee and black fruit is forthcoming on the bouquet. These aromas follow through on a silky full body palate, with dried plum and pepper flavours. Complete structure and a full body wine with a well balanced between tannins acidity leaves a lingering taste.
  •  Rosé  :  Bouquet and Palate  :   A sweet nose of cherries, berries and candy floss. The palate is dry with 'savoury fruity' tones and a refreshing acidity .
  •  Pinotage  :  This wine has a nice dark colour and a typical Pinotage nose of banana and lots of Rooibos tea. It is full bodied, displays spice and pepper on the tongue, but is soft and smooth with a lingering aftertaste.
  •  Sauvignon Blanc  :  Lively nose with sweet fruity aromas. Intense fruit on the palate with crisp mineral tones, well balanced with a soft finish.
  • Spliced  :  An abundance of ripe berries with spice on the nose. On the pallet the wine shows more spicy smoky tones, the oak compliments the spice on the aftertaste leaving a mouth-coating long finish.
  •  Quinary  :  Dark, deep red colour. Bold aromas of blackcurrant and mulberries with hints of aromatic herbs. Tåhe palet is finely formed and elegant with forest floor earthiness complimented by the blackcurrant fruitiness. Long, soft, lingering fruity finish.
