A touch barnyard on the nose,
Heavier bodied with some great classic SA characteristics, green pepper, garden stalk, cocoa. Bitter acidity, tiny tannins. I love everything about this wine, except the wax encapsulation. I find this closure method rather short sighted, as no sommelier in the world wants to struggle with a wax dipped cork closure during service. Certainly no beverage manager would allow this on the list. — 6 months ago
A little tannicky, needs some time to smooth out — 3 years ago
This had a lot going on and is still in its infancy: stewed prunes, mocha, soil, mushroom, blackberry jam, spice and whiff of camphor. Very tightly wound, rigid tannins - rather unyielding at this point. Felt the ABV on mid palate thru finish which was not cohesive at this time. Need to revisit in 5-7 yrs — 3 years ago
