Our 2010 Wildebeest displays purity and power, with firm tannins, enticing aromatics and a creamy texture. Even though they are not the majority of the blend, the Bordeaux varieties shine through, with the Cabernet Sauvignon providing beautiful structure, acidity and a dark berry core, and the Cabernet Franc contributing ethereal blue fruit notes and hints of exotic spice and mint. Throughout, the Syrah adds lush layers of black cherry, raspberry and licorice, making this a rich and compelling BEAST.

Wine Making Notes:

Our 2010 Wildebeest was blended from 77% Syrah, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Cabernet Franc, with each lot fermented and aged separately in the finest French oak for 20 months. In order to allow the Wildebeest to display its native fruit and spice character, the barrels were generally older (from two to five years). However, approximately 25% was aged in larger-format puncheons, with one puncheon being new. Overall, the new oak is 7%.
