The vineyards are located in the Banghoek Valley, Stellenbosch.
This tight, dark-skinned variety loves the exposed mountain soils of the Simonsberg - this is fully ripe but defined by the winds that howl down the slope's poor soils. Elegant and well-balanced it has a wonderfully spiced fruit nose with dark plum and prune fruit on the palate and a full but fine tannic structure. Can be enjoyed now but will mature well for at least 5 years.
