“The 2017 Thief In The Night (another great name for a wine) is a blend of Grenache from the Soldaat vineyard, shared with Eben Sadie, blended with Cinsault and Syrah. It was aged for nine months in 2,400- and 1,600-liter foudres, along with two 500-liter French oak barrels. It has an extraordinarily pure bouquet of morello cherry, crushed strawberry, rosewater and minerals. The palate is well defined with a slight stalkiness from the 70% whole-bunch fruit. There is a tingle of Szechuan pepper on the tip of the tongue and great length to the finish. A storming debut.” – Neal Martin, Vinous Media.
