A blend of Roussanne, Grenache blanc, Chenin blanc, Verdelho and Grenache Gris.
This wine originated with a really bad experience where the regulatory liquor board stopped the sales of the 2011 vintage. The wine was left in the winery cellars until it was re-tasted by the liquor board in 2016 and allowed to be exported. That showed the ageing potential of this southern Rhone style blend produced in Western Cape.
The 2020 is the third release of this wine that has an ageing potential of 5-7 years.
The label was created by Pieter son's inspired by the Smaug the Magnificent, the Dragon of Lord of the Rings.
