Finally… the Union was a long time coming, but to find the right terroir for this specific style of wine took a lot of effort and thoughtful planning. Grown entirely in the Tulbagh region the 2016 Union is dark and inky. Predominantly Syrah, this wine has got ample complex aromas of blue berries, charcoal, violets and bacon fat. Exotic, smoky and thick with elegance as well as excellent definition. Extraordinary balance between primary fruit aromas and deep charry mineral components gives the wine an inviting natural warmth and broodiness.

The label scene is set in Tulbagh and it carries the message of unification. The two entities on the other labels, the girl (Mother Nature) and the swift (the Winemaker) finally found a place to be together. The tree in the background takes the role of stability and calmness that anchors them.

This is a blend of 44% Syrah, 34% Carignan and 22% Mourvèdre. The Syrah is grown on an arid scaly soil, that yields no more than two tons of grapes per hectare. The soil can simply not handle a heavier crop load, the result: a super concentrated and dark wine. The Carignan and Mourvèdre grows about 200 metres to the south of the Syrah on a deeper loamy soil and yields a softer more perfumy wine. The Carignan and Mourvèdre is fermented together to complement each other's strengths. The grapes are fermented in concrete open top tanks for about a month. After which the wine is transferred to third and fourth fill barrels to ensure the wines bright fruit
integrity. The wines spend 16 months in barrel and is then bottled and stored for another year in bottle before release.
