The Flag bearer for the estate, this wine is the ultimate expression of Zorgvliet terroir. Following in the footsteps of the Zorgvliet winemaking philosophy, 'Elegance in Wine', this wine shows great elegance and immense concentration. Cedarwood and whiffs of tobacco give way to clean ripe dark berry fruit. The palate shows cassis fruit with restrained minerality, leading to a textured and fine tannin structure.
A blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23 % Petit Verdot, and equal parts, 8 % Merlot, 8 % Cabernet Franc, 8 % Malbec. The wine spent 21 months in French and Russian Oak, with the first 12 months being spent as individual components, then blended and returned to wood for a further 8 months with no rackings.
