Vision is still very much Danie Steytler Senior's wine and it shows his preference for structure and ageworthy concentration in his Cape Blend.

The Steytler Range is the culmination of Kaapzicht's best wines in exceptional vintages only, forged by tradition and four generations of Steytler passion.

Power and concentration are immediately evident, within a tightly-woven structure showing lots of promise. Generous cassis and blackberries as well as vanilla and spice from oak. Complex and multi-dimensional, those who can resist the temptation will be rewarded well with cellaring. 50% Pinotage; 35% Cabernet Sauvignon; 15% Merlot.

Vision is an impressive Cape blend [...] a serious, youthful, vigorous number with succulent red berry fruit, good backbone and the polish and class of the 2015 vintage.
