Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

R139.00

Tasting Notes

Our Cabernet Sauvignon is a vibrant and full bodied wine. The nose displays aromatic plum and dense cassis with a hint of mint. Classic oak characteristics like chocolate, cedar and roasted coffee beans compliment the black berry fruit flavours. The tannins are refined but present and this wine will be at its best in +5years.

Harvest and Winemaking Information

The grapes are sourced form 8 different sights on the farm and carefully vinified separately. Fermentation lasts up to 7 days and then a further maceration period of at least a month commences before the must is pressed and moved to oak. 30% new French Oak and 70% second fill French Oak was used to mature this Cabernet Sauvignon for a time of 18 months.

*Minimum orders of 6 bottles (one case) are required.

This wine calls for some serious food. Roasted lamb dishes or a fabulous Beef Bourguignon will pair nicely with this classic Cabernet.
