Wine tasting notes

The wine offers a perfumed nose of red and black fruits layered with plum tomato and pepper, and an elegant palate with fine tannin and lingering savoury flavours. Spice Route Winemaker Charl du Plessis hails it as Spice Route’s “most elegant red wine” – one that “fully expresses that the Swartland is capable of great finesse.” This vineyard was planted in 2008, right on the top of the farm where the wind is fierce and the soils are poor, but Grenache seems to thrive in difficult conditions. After only four years, the vine is already showing great potential and I couldn’t resist sharing the delicate style that this grape shows on its own,” says winemaker Charl du Plessis.
