DNA is a Cabernet Franc dominant blend compote of berry fruit nicely rounded by chocolate and coffee notes.

This wine shows a serious tannin structure and intensity but has soft round features that linger on the palate.

Enjoy with Karoo lamb rack, beef stews and pasta dishes.


2016 is a fine and beautiful vintage with silky smooth and elegant with a long aftertaste.

Drink now and over the next 10-15 years. 

Grapes were hand-picked and de-stemmed but not crushed. The de-stemmed grapes were cooled to 8°C and ‘cold soaked’ for 168 hours. Fermentation took place at 25°C followed by a 42 day maceration on the skins.

After malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine went into 100% new French oak barrels for 16 months.
