A fragrant smorgasbord of Merlot, Verdot, Shiraz and Tannat. Black fruits, liquorice and spice that linger on a lengthy palate with fully rounded, soft tannins. A highly drinkable 'bokkie' especially round a BBQ.

Merlot 23%, Petit Verdot 21%, Shiraz 21%, Tannat 19%, Cabernet Sauvignon 16%. Aged in old French oak for 10 months.

9,200 bottles produced in 2020.

Situated in the Bo-Karoo (Upper Karoo) is a little town called Prieska, nestled at the foot of Doringberg on the south bank of the Orange River. Translated Karoo means 'the place of big drought', named by the Hottentots; Prieska means 'place of the lost she-goat' in Khoisan. In Afrikaans this translates to a 'Verlore Bokooi'.  Voila!
