South Africa's own red grape, here providing a juicy waterfall of
ripe red berries: redcurrants, plums and raspberries.
Grapes come from 3 different sites in the Riebeek Valley planted on mountain slopes where the climate is very similar to that of the Mediterranean. The 15-18 year old vines are planted on granite and shale soils with 3 wire trellis canopy management and drip feed irrigation. They are planted at a density of 3400 vines per hectare and yield around 85 hl/ha. The grapes are harvested by hand the first week of March.
Un-wooded and easy-drinking this wine is great with meat dishes,
pasta or for everyday enjoyment.
