A visionary blend!  Spicy Bordeaux style with homage to Hermitage.  Cabernet sauvignon and Merlot dominate this multi-award winning wine with a supporting cast of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot spiced up with a decent serving of Syrah! The nose is brimming with red berry and mulberry flavours, with subtle notes of pencil shavings, spicy white pepper, fynbos and violets in early spring. A smooth elegant palate with mid-palate ripeness and spicy supple finish.  Red and black fruits dominate balanced with a graphite steeliness. The tannins are soft and refined and exquisitely round off the aromas of spice and fresh plum.  The multiple components of Visionaire allow each to show off its own unique characters while combining to produce an experience greater than the parts – each varietal a celebrated soloist combining with the orchestra of the blend! Pair this wine with rosemary roasted Karoo lamb chops or a fine 30-day plus air dried fillet steak with a pepper sauce!  This wine is complex – keep the food simple to enjoy in its natural goodness.
