Refreshingly different, the wine gives the impression of having some sweetness while actually being dry. Excellent with bacon and eggs, as well as all spicy foods. The ‘dark horse’ of our cellar, this wine always surprises new consumers.
This wine shows spice, perfumed oak, violets and wild berry on the nose. The palate is an array of intense concentrated anise, pepper and cardamon along with black and red fruits, backed up by the characteristic Kleinhoekkloof perfume. Focused and balanced with supple tannins and a chalky finish.
Due to the uniquely cold climate on the farm, this wine is crystal clear and bright which at first shows rich granadilla and cape gooseberries, however once settled in the bottle, these flavours show more fresh herbs and fynbos with a hint of green figs.
