Tasting Note

A burst of dark red fruits, blackberry, blackcurrant, canned peas, savoury notes and molasses or toffee. The palate of dark red fruit follows through with a smokey, herbaceous finish.


Sourced from Wildepaardekloof - Ashton, the Drift Estate and Siberia, Hemel-en-Aarde. All grapes are low yields, sustainably farmed and hand picked.

Cabernet franc and malbec, are destemmed respectively, Grenache is whole cluster carbonic fermentation in a closed tank under CO2. Must was kept cool for 5-7 days, after which tanks were warmed up and natural yeast carried out the fermentation. Pressed off the skins 24-31 days after completion of alcoholic fermentation using a traditional basket press. Natural malolactic fermentation took place in barrel. Wine was in barrel for 20 months and racked three times before bottling. Course filtration only, no fining.

Lisa Harlow
The best of the Bruce Jack wines

The best of the Bruce Jack wines, in an otherwise mediocre line up It is actually 85% Cab Franc, 10% Malbec and 5% Grenache, restrained alcohol at 13.5% Grapes from Ashton and Hemel en Aarde. 20 months in old oak Blueberry and lots of it! Also blackcurrant Smoky and earthy Green bell pepper Caramel Graphite Tannins still quite tight, fresh acidity Herbal and spicy finish Decent buy at £18

Warren Douglas
Lovely mouth feel

Lovely mouth feel, a sort of blend of white and black pepper, sweet coffee and persimmon balanced nicely.

Johan Mocke
Steady summer wine

Nice fruity nose, with raison on the palate, and just before watery, a strong tannin kicks in and control the whole business to a steady summer wine. Nice funky label.
