Red black colour intensity with strong smokey, leather, black pepper and dark roast flavours and an abundance of ripe black fruit-notes of earthy compost. Medium full weight, well structured middle palate and full round tannins with a fresh balance. Meaning “black earth”, a reflection on both the great Swartberg mountains and the black highly organic soil in which this Syrah vineyard is planted, hence the name “Terre Noire”.
A dark bright colour intensity, typical flavours of sweet ripe raspberry and black cherry; the supporting oak displays dark chocolate and black spice flavours following onto the palate with a full bodied juicy and balanced structure and long finish. As testimony to our sustainable approach we left an old wild olive (Olienhout) tree in the middle of our Pinotage vineyard, hence the name “One Tree Hill”.
An absolute over-delivery of quality at this price point. A dark and rich wine – coffee & chocolate and smooth as silk… Bright and intense crimson red colour. Loaded with ripe red berry fruit; mulberry, raspberry and red cherry. Soft integration of roasted coffee and light chocolate flavours balanced with a hint of black spice. A soft smooth but well structured palate.
Methode Blanc de Noir, made from Red Muscadel in a drier more refreshing and aromatic approachable style-think red berry! A modern vibrant style with an intense lively rose colour. Expressive raspberry and frambois flavours with a touch of rose petal and musk. The palate livens up with a fresh and crisp fruit driven taste and finely balanced sugar:acid ratio.
Made from 100% Muscat de Frontignan (Red Muscadel) grown on the sun drenched northern slopes on Karusa.

Elegant and crisp-notes of fresh lime and citrus with fresh white fruit and light leesy flavours. Subtle mouthfeel and balanced acidity.
The abundance of Aloe Ferox with its bright orange plumes on the north sloping ridge on Karusa guards over this single vineyard Chardonnay, henc the name “Aloe Ridge”.
A clean cut wine with a limey minerality. Erupting green fig and cut grass notes topped with tropical fruit flavour integration. A soft palate with a flinty crisp and fresh white fruit palate. This single vineyard is planted on a direct South facing 11 degree slope at 550m altitude on Karusa, hence the name “Southern Slope”.
