A blend of Tempranillo (60%) and Alicante Bouschet (40%)

"Night falls and Black Nightshade (Nastergal) blooms, its berries ripen to inky black. The deep-red flesh of the Alicante Bouschet, which gives the Nastergal blend its depth, is tempered only by the bold Tempranillo grape in this pursuit of a wine as dark as Black Nightshade." - Stephanie & Etienne

Grapes sourced from the the foothills of the Stellenbosch mountain. Deep red, well drained soils of granite and sandstone buffer these vines from extreme conditions.

Inky black with aromas of vibrant mulberry and red berries coexisting with intense spices, black pepper and olives on the nose. The nimble palate is flinty and spiced finishing with a serious upper-cut for those thinking this wine won’t age.
