The uniqueness of each harvest is captured in that year’s range of One Formation wines. These exceptional blends are created from grape varieties that perform the best in specific regions during the new season. With only one batch made of each blend, wine lovers can look forward to a singular vintage year on year.
The grapes for this elegant Rhône style blend derive from vineyards in the Paardeberg area of the Cape Coastal Region, with a combination of well-drained granite and shale soils which ensure good fruit development and character.
The different batches of selected grapes were picked at optimum ripeness and separately fermented at warmer temperatures of 24 - 27°C to prevent over-extraction of tannins and promote elegance. After careful blending, the wine was aged in third fill French oak barrels for 14 months.
An elegant red wine with hints of vanilla and white pepper on the nose. Prominent dark berry fruit, the soft spiciness and almond flavours combine with a touch of savouriness, lingering on the palate with balance and finesse. Pair with venison, beef steak or pork fillet.
