The wine is opaque in the centre with a translucent licorice rim. It offers blackberries and crème de cassis with hints of graphite and tobacco leaf on the nose, all combining to promise a mouthful of power. The full-bodied palate has an opulent texture and a wealth of fruit—that will leave you clambering to pinpoint each one. Complex layers peel off as you sip; expect savoury notes of roasted meats and fynbos to fresh violets, coffee as well as a mineral element. The Blue Lady 2015 offers intensity and purity; with a balanced symmetry that is pure poetry.
