Each component of this blend carries different varietal characteristics and reflects slight soil differences between different vineyards on the estate. It is a true reflection of Simonsberg terroir. The wine elicits the aromas and tastes of fresh black currant, and plum with a touch of mint. Oak plays a well-integrated supporting role.

From hand-sorting at harvest, each component of this blend begins its fermentation in tank and completes it in 225l French oak barrels. Only the lowest press fractions are used for blending, resulting in a wine composed almost entirely of free-run juice.
