The Idiom Collection

Each cultivar was matched to the optimum vineyard site possible. The range consists of 17 different varietals and provides a unique and direct comparison between the famous French wines of Bordeaux and the Rhone, Tuscany and Piedmont, but expressed in the Cape terroir.

SINGLE VARIETALS

VIOGNIER

A pale golden hue with delicate honey nougat notes and peach blossoms on the nose. A medium bodied mouth feel perfectly balanced between creaminess and freshness. White peaches, almonds and elegant spices dance on the palate. A fragrant wine with a trademark texture.

SANGIOVESE

A stylish wine with a tantalising nose and complex mouth-feel. Rich red and sour cherry aromas are enhanced by savoury notes and spicy flavours of tobacco and tar. A great balance between tannin and fruit make this a grand sangiovese for the connoisseur. I

ZINFANDEL

An explosive wine typical of our exotic ‘primitivo’. Aromas of fynbos and a fusion of sage, rosemary and mint dominate the nose. Intense flavours of blackberries and raspberries on the palate enhance the sweet cooking herbs making the mouth water at the thought of potential food matches.

Blends

CAB SAUV CAB FRANC MERL – B BLEND

Elegant and complex. Full bodied multi clone blend of Bordeaux varietals Cabernet sauvignon, Cabernet franc, Merlot and Petit verdot. Intriguing aromas of cassis and dark chocolate are followed by hints of black truffle and cigar box, leaving a superb long lingering finish. A wine of great pedigree and the flagship of the Idiom range

PINOTAGE (CAPE BLEND) – C BLEND

A velvety opulent wine made with the Cape’s own grape Pinotage, blended with Cabernet sauvignon, Cabernet franc and Merlot. Intriguing multilayered aromas, flavours and textures. Notes of darkberry, liquorice and cloves. Subtle tannins and a beautifully crafted finish are the hallmarks of this lively wine.

SMV (RHONE STYLE) – R BLEND

A rich and flamboyant full bodied blend of Shiraz, Mourvedre, and Viognier. Dark and broody, with sweet aromas of violets, lavender, black cherry and dark chocolate. A mouth filling wine with rich, savoury flavours and a long, elegant finish.
