Other recent vintages:  2020  

Khayelitsha’s first ever fine wine: sowing the seeds of drinking awesome wine in historically underrepresented neighborhoods. Deep ruby in color, with a full, rich palate and polished tannins. This wine displays a dense ruby color. Youthful notes of blackberries with layers of strawberries in between. The polished and integrated tannins express cherry flavors with hints of spice on the palate. A finishing touch of subtle oak notes lingers on the aftertaste.

Red Blend is a collaboration with Saxenburg, located in the Polkadraai Hills region of Stellenbosch (more southerly vineyard sites, with a beautiful view over False Bay). Lindile and I worked alongside their winemaker Dirk van Zyl to create this bold, juicy, textured number - a barrel selection of Shiraz and Cabernet. Each vinified separately, and then blended together to showcase the perfect expression for a frosty Eastern Seaboard winter's evening. The Shiraz vines are well-established on the property, and are one of the Estate's main claims to fame (we just took the chonkiest, juiciest barrels as we wanted something bold and boisterous).
