City on a Hill Red | City on a Hill

Perfumed blend of Syrah with a touch of Tinta Barroca and Cinsault, with bright spicy notes against a backdrop of ripe red and black fruit. Elegant in structure, with trademark Swartland fynbos and olive notes, this wine is ever progressing as more vineyards and varieties will be added in future vintages to better express the area.
