This wine is based around the highest elevation vineyard on the farm – at 500 meters arguably one of  Stellenbosch’s highest Cabernet vineyards. Originally planted in 2003, it burned down in 2009 and was re-planted. It is an ideal combination of soil and site. It has a very stoney decomposed granite soil with a clay subsoil and it has an almost perfect aspect towards the afternoon sun. This aspect and elevation means that the vineyard receives almost 45 minutes more direct sunlight than Stellenbosch average.

93 | Dense. Deep, concentrated fruit. Bold tannins. Slightly clunky. Good - but it does not have the seamless flow that I look for in the very best examples of cabernet. Still, it has character.

93 | Very deep, dense colour. Smoky tobacco, cigarbox and nori aromas, palate is bold and full-bodied but an electric stab of acid runs through it. Big, chewy, mouth-coating tannins. God ripe cab fruit deep at the core.

91 | balanced complex, layers of fruit earth and oak with a ripe phenolic grip and firm tannic backbone long finish, smartly made enjoy with food, soft lift of herbal and savory edge,

90 | Moderate concentration but looks a little hollow on the palate? Chewy tannins
