Deep garnet red with lifted aromas of cranberry, blackcurrant leaf and cocoa. The palate is broad and layered with silky tannins and complex notes of dark plum, graphite and pomegranate. The finish is structured and long.

The grapes for this Cabernet Sauvignon are sourced from a single vineyard on the lower slopes of the Helderberg Mountain, one of the coolest viticultural areas in Stellenbosch. The vines are planted on deep, loam rich soils. These rich soils, combined with the site’s cool climate, produce a Cabernet Sauvignon with impressive concentration and freshness.

Founded in 2021, Great Heart is a staff empowerment project collectively owned by the winery workers of Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines. The logo, a flock of Wagtails, refers to South African folklore, in which the Wagtail bird is often depicted as a symbol of bravery and selflessness. Under the mentorship of Chris and Andrea Mullineux, Great Heart’s head winemaker Gynore Hendricks and his team uphold a similar philosophy. Following sustainable viticultural practices and minimal intervention winemaking, they produce wines focusing on single sites and natural fruit intensity.
