The Cabernet Sauvignon
This wine is a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon with all the grapes coming from the Estate. The nose is filled with rich wooded notes, like cigar box and cedar wood. Behind these bold flavours one finds Violets and Liquorice. On the palate you have an elegant tannin structure with dark berries, blackcurrants and a long finish.
After harvesting the grapes the must has been cold soaked for 7 days at a temperature of 7°C. Thereafter it was fermented for 8 days in open concrete tanks with 5 punch downs a day. Finally, the must was oaked for 12 months in French oak. After tasting through all of the components only the best barrels were selected, and the wine was moved for another 6 months into first fill French oak barrels only. This wine was two times in 100% new wood.
Perfectly paired with peppered Black Angus Steak, Rack of lamb and braised Beef Ribs
Drinking well now, but perfect after aging another 3 years. Can easily age up to 10-12 years.
