The Divergent blend comprises of 34% Carignan, 33% Cinsaut and 33% Cabernet Sauvignon. The Carignan was picked first towards the end of January from 13 year old, unirrigated bush vines from Wellington. The Cinsaut, from the Helderberg region, was then picked in mid – February. These are 41-year old, unirrigated bush vines. Lastly, the Cabernet Sauvignon was picked early-March from 17-year old trellised and irrigated vines on from the Stellenbosch region (Polkadraai).
The nose shows lovely cherry, currant and plum fruit, floral character and spice. A medium bodied palate, well balanced with a nice freshness and a savoury finish. Fine and expressive with wonderful purity.
