"Share an intriguing common sensorial identity with generous whiffs of morello cherries emanating from both the Cabernet Sauvignon (2008 Magnifica), and the 2006 Blend, while palates reveal gentle, integrated tannins."

Die Burger
Wyn-Nonnie Dedekind Belfield Magnifica 2008

"This wine has a character and sombreness' which blew me away...has unbelievable balance and elegance.

This Magnifica has enough sweet fruit for passion and pleasure, enough character, and enough woema."
