An intense garnet red in colour with purple hues. Hints of ripe berries, dark chocolate, spice and pencil shavings greet you on the bouquet. The palate brings silky tannins, complemented by a fruitiness and delicate oak notes with a lingering finish that is truly elegant.

Eikendal Vineyards sits between the foothills of the Helderberg and the edge of Stellenbosch Mountains, in what’s known as ‘The Golden Triangle’, an area suited beautifully to winemaking. It offers a range of soil types, generous elevation and cooling ocean breezes from False Bay. The property was bought in 1981 by the Saager family from Zurich, Switzerland, who immediately saw its potential to produce world-class wine. Eikendal prides itself in blending modern viticulture with Old World winemaking, with a belief that quality comes from creating concentrated berries in the vineyard, and working to preserve their flavour in the cellar to create wines with elegance, freshness and finesse.
