Stonerock Viognier ~ 2015 Vintage Barrel Fermented
Green yellow hue with expressive honey blossom, yellow citrus and floral flavours and notes of lime and flint subtle secondary flavours of cinnamon and spice.

During the soil preparation for this vineyard, a heap of huge stones and rocks were pushed together and the vineyard planted around it, hence the name "Stonerock".

One Tree Hill Pinotage
 

One Tree Hill Pinotage ~ 2014 Vintage
A dark bright colour intensity, typical flavours of sweet ripe raspberry and black cherry; the supporting oak displays dark chocolate and black spice flavours following onto the palate with a full bodied juicy and balanced structure and long finish. As testimony to our sustainable approach we left an old wild olive (Olienhout) tree in the middle of our Pinotage vineyard, hence the name "One Tree Hill".

Terre Noire Syrah
 

Terre Noire Syrah ~ 2014 Vintage
Red black colour intensity with strong smokey, leather, black pepper and dark roast flavours and an abundance of ripe black fruit-notes of earthy compost. Medium full weight, well structured middle palate and full round tannins with a fresh balance. Meaning "black earth", a reflection on both the great Swartberg mountains and the black highly organic soil in which this Syrah vineyard is planted, hence the name "Terre Noire".

Terre Noire Syrah  

Double Black Petit Sirah (aka Duriff) ~ 2014 Vintage
Not for the faint hearted. This is “elegance with an edge” – pitch black colour intensity with falvours of prune, blackcurrant – molasses and tar- feint flavours of blackspice and savoury. Huge tannin structure that screams for steaks and red meat dishes.
