About this Item
In 2002, American/Russian property tycoon Preston Haskell IV purchased the farm Dombeya (originally part of neighbouring Rust & Vrede) and renamed it Haskell Vineyards. Shortly thereafter, Rianie Strydom joined Haskell as Winemaker and GM, and soon became the first woman to be offered membership of the Cape Winemakers Guild.
'Strong purple-red; a rich, voluptuous wine with abundant blackberry and plum fruit, soft tannins and plenty of quality oak. 94 points; drink to 2020' - James Halliday, Wine Companion 2011, 94/100
'Dense and complex 2007 has intense blackberries, layers spice, herbs & fresh plums. Firm, textured tannins that still need time to knit. Lively, enduring. Good potential. Includes 5% Mourvedre. Unfiltered, 16 months 40% new French oak.' - Platter's SA Wine Guide 2010, 4.5*
