From a small vineyard near Alexandra, the savoury, tightly structured 2016 vintage (4*) was matured for a year in French oak casks. Ruby-hued, it is mouthfilling, with youthful, moderately rich cherry, plum, spice and nut flavours, fresh acidity, finely balanced tannins, and good complexity. Best drinking 2021+.
