build mid-palate texture without compromising its

drive and length. The only gold in the sauvignon blanc

class at the National Wine Show ’16. Drink By: 2017.

SYRAH/CABERNET FRANC/

MERLOT 2013

Casablanca Valley

TASTING NOTE: 76% Syrah, 14% Cabernet Franc,

10%Merlot. The Syrah dominates the nose with

juicy, intense blackberries and freshly ground black

pepper. The palate is generous, with plenty going

on: black cherry, fresh bright mulberry and apple pie

fruit with a grind of black pepper, underpinned by

solid tannins. Exquisite and well crafted. Score:
