ORIGIN
Grapes for the wine originate from vineyards in the Walker Bay, Agter-Paarl and Wellington areas

VINICULTURE
Grapes were picked in crates and cooled overnight. After cooling, bunches were hand-sorted before and after destemming and inoculated with selected yeasts. Fermentation was at between 23 en 28 °C. The wine was pumped over three times a day. After fermentation, extended skin contact of between 20 and 30 days was allowed.

For 14 months the wine was matured in 225-litre French oak barrels – 50% new, 25% second-fill and 25% third-fill barrels. After maturation, the Cabernet Sauvignon was blended with 3% Petit Verdot for complexity and balance.

CELLARMASTER’S IMPRESSIONS
The wine reflects varietal aromas on the nose, with wild berries, tomato leaf, cedar, cinnamon spice, dark chocolate and truffle prominent. The heavy-bodied palate has a firm structure, but a fine tannin texture and pleasantly dry after-taste.

CONNOISSEUR’S CHOICE
This wine is a classical example of a South African Cabernet Sauvignon. It will complement any fine food, especially roasts, venison and red meats, as well as strong, noble cheese.
