Outstanding 100% Nebbiolo, embryonic at this stage yet showing so much potential for further developments, arguably South Africa's finest example to date, leaning more towards Barbaresco than Barolo with restraint subtlety without being one dimensional, serene confidence, fantastic color typical of the variety, bright reflections, the wine is focus with impressive acidity thread, rare occurence in a Stellenbosch red from the Helderberg area, cellar worthy. Limited productions.
