Deep ruby velvet in color with an exotic nose combining red plums, blackberries, blueberries, violets, cardamom, and walnuts that follow through onto the palate.

Winery

The Elgin Vintners are a partnership of six dedicated grape growers who, believing in the excellence of the terroir and diversity of their vineyards, have combined their resources to cultivate and produce a range of high quality wines. They hail from the beautiful Elgin Valley, a high inland plateau completely surrounded by mountains, seventy kilometres along the coast from Cape Town. This cool climate region was long known for its apple orchards but since the turn of the century quality conscious winemakers have been taking advantage of the temperate conditions, afforded by the high altitudes and cooling winds from the Atlantic, to grow exemplary Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
