The Story

The 30 hectare estate is set on a mix of gravel, iron and mineral soil with a scattering of sand throughout. Planted to mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with a large portion of Merlot and a small portion of Cabernet Franc, the blend sees all three grapes mixed to create the wine best representing the terroir of the site. Fermentation takes place in cemernt tanks, while the wine is sent for a year to mostly old oak barrels. The resulting wines are savoury, fine, medium-bodied and readily drinkable as a young wine.
