Winemakers’ comments

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 +5 years.

Vinification

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.
