Tasting Notes

'The wine spent 2 weeks on skins, 20% as whole bunches in order to maximise the fruit’s true expression. All components were picked on the same day from the same property in the Piekenierskloof and co-fermented. The blend was aged in one 3400L foudre for 11 months before bottling. With a fabulously crystalline, translucent ruby red colour, this wine is sassy and confident from the get go, showing a rich, deep, savoury spicy aromatic depth of autumnal leaves, freshly cut hedge row, sappy earthy black cherry fruits and a subtle peppery broody depth.

More Info

Yet again, the compact signature 2019 palate texture density and harmony is unambiguous. A seamless fruit – acid balance and a savoury earthy red currant and bramble berry spice complexity asserting itself on the long, plush, polished finish. This is the most confident and accomplished expression of the Thief in the Night to date. Drink from release and over 3 – 8+ years.' Greg Sherwood
