ELYSIUM

The maiden vintage of this unique co-fermented wine is only possible due to the rare occurrence of Merlot and Syrah ripening at the same time on the Holden Manz farm in Franschhoek. The individual varietals were hand-picked on 10th March 2015 by our Cellar-master and then hand-sorted allowing only the most optimally ripe berries to be used for this wine. Only 900 bottles produced.
