Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Our revamped packaging boasting an embossed wolf on the bottle has certainly played a part in winning over even more followers of this ever so popular wine. Traditionally the choice of cultivars remains the same, but an increase in the Syrah component for the 2016 blend, resulted in more enhanced spicy flavours than before. 2016 was a challenging vintage, with dry conditions causing small yields and unusual grape analysis. Regardless of these obstacles, we continued to meticulously ferment and blend the components to produce a wine which still over-delivers in all respects. Alcoholic fermentation was done in stainless steel with partial French oak maturation for nine months.

The nose entices with its abundance of ripe plums, blueberries, slight spiciness and notes of violets. Dark berry fruit follows through onto a juicy, vibrant mid-palate with svelte tannins and a silky texture. The wine shows exceptional balance with fresh, integrated acidity. Plummy fruit and spice lingers on the finish."


90/100 Decanter World Wine Awards 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Sweet blackberry fruit and kalamata paste show on the sleek palate with gentle fruit and bruleed coffee bean."
