Style

A classic interpretation of New World Cabernet Sauvignon from South Africa.

Vinification

The grapes used for the production of this wine originate from Stellenbosch vineyards. Grapes were picked at 25 degrees Balling. Fermentation took place at 28 degrees Celsius, with daily pump-overs and punch-downs. Wine was pressed to barrel and malolactic fermentation took place in barrel.

Maturation

The wine was matured in a combination of second- and third-fill 225-litre French oak barrels for a period of 14 to 16 months. Prior to release, the wine was bottle-matured for a period of 11 months.

Characteristics

The wine shows fragrances of blackcurrant and blueberry. The palate is elegant, with prominent cherry flavours and support by soft oak tannins leaving a lingering finish. This classic Cabernet Sauvignon is well structured, with excellent maturation potential.
