No real sign of fading at the core - deep right up to the rim, which is just beginning to ruby.
Nose is deep fruit - compote-y.
The palate's brilliantly pure cassis and blueberries with a hint of tar on the backbone. A touch of green pepper and spice. None of that horrendous burnt rubber what ruins so many South African reds. I like this, rather surprisingly. A bit simple, but lovely.
