Best Value wine Awards - Wine Magazine 2007
Our Superquaffer! A Merlot based blend which is soft and smooth. The faintest touch of white pepper and spice offsetting a juicy berry flavour with good length and a solid tannin delivery. An affordable, easy drinking favourite that's one to stock up on and to share with the Old Man in your life.

In The Cellar
This special blend is a selection of grapes from specific vineyard blocks on the farm that was managed to give this wine its specific style. During harvest the cultivars are kept apart and aged in third fill 300L French oak and in stainless steel tanks. After 12 months the different components are blended after rigorous tasting sessions with our Old Man, Peter Pentz.
