This blend predominantly is made from the traditional Rhône varieties Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre. The Shiraz was harvested from trellised vineyards in the Paarl, Darling, Stellenbosch and Swartland regions. The Mourvèdre is from Paarl and Stellenbosch regions. The juicy Grenache noir is from the Paarl. Other varieties included at small percentages are Cinsault, Tempranillo, Petite Sirah, and Carignan all grown on decomposed granite soils from our Paarl and Swartland vineyards. The Cinsault is from 27-year-old bush vines up on the higher decomposed sites in Paarl. All the grapes are 100% Fairtrade.
