COUNTRY/REGION: South Africa/Western Cape.
GRAPES: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
UNIT: 1 x 75cl Bottle.
VINIFICATION: From several un-irrigated vineyards in the Agter-Paarl area and the premium Stellenbosch region. Our Malmesbury Shale soils have excellent water retention ability and give concentrated, flavourful grapes, which were hand-harvested at optimum ripeness and given a one day cold maceration. Fermentation took place over 5 days in stainless steel tanks with regular pumpovers. Just before dryness, the wine was pressed and put back into tank for malo-lactic fermentation. 50% of the wine was matured in 300 l American oak barrels (25% new) for 12 months. Fined and filtered before bottling.
TASTING NOTES: A bold and juicy red wine with red-berry fruit aromas and a touch of oak spice. Classic cabernet cassis and red-currant fruit flavours with silky tannins and long finish.
FOOD MATCHING: Goes well with a wide range of foods, particularly red meats and pasta. Serve at a cool room temperature.
