Description

This daring, exotic blend consists of Sangiovese 24%, Shiraz 20%, Petite Syrah 19%, Grenache Noir 16%, Cinsaut 16% and Malbec 5%. The Sangiovese is grown on the northern the slopes of the Helderberg, with the Shiraz and Malbec, Petite Syrah, Grenache and Cinsaut all originating from Agter-Paarl. The Cinsaut and Grenache are bush vine cultivated. The soils these vineyards grow in are mostly weathered granite, which imparts excellent minerality to the fruit.

“This unconventional blend is inspired by the dog’s cheeky chutzpah. Bright red cherry in colour and flavours of plums with an earthy minerality makes for endless enjoyment after work, at a steakhouse or around a fire. Chill it or add a block of ice, as we do in summer on the farm.”
