Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Petit Verdot
This Syrah-based red blend with 20% Petit Verdot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc has a rich and multi-faceted bouquet of ripe black cherries, cassis, pimento, vanilla, garrigue spices, dark chocolate and liquorice. It is rich on the front palate without being heavy, and it leads to layer-after-layer of complex fruit flavours such as cherry compote, wild plums, mulberry juice and dried forrest berries. It has distinct notes of mocha and black truffle, delicate acidity, smoky minerality and wonderful tannin structure. This is a world-class wine with immense character, earthy minerality, and an impressive, lingering finish. Under optimal cellar conditions, this wine is expected to age beautifully up to 2050.
G wines were crafted by Bordeaux winemaker Valérie Lavigne who took over from Denis Dubourdieu together with 4G Wines' South African cellar master to create the ‘First Growth of the Cape’. Production is strictly limited to 4538 bottles. Read more about 4G Wines.
