Anwilka’s wines are, in recent vintages, becoming ones I recognise for their remarkable balance as much as their big Stellenbosch fruit character and luxurious tannic structure. The quality is better than ever since Robert Parker famously declared their inaugural 2005 vintage as the finest red wine he had tasted from South Africa, with the estate’s Cabernet-Syrah blend’s vines starting to come of age, producing exceptional fruit.

Succulent cherries, dates and blackberries are supported by bay leaves, clove, and a touch of graphite. The finish is impressively long as the fruit paves way for persisting dark chocolate and tobacco flavours. The structure will support another 5-8 years in bottle, although I wouldn't blame you for reaching for it now.
