Multi-layered requires quiet contemplation to enjoy its gifts: graphite, creamy blackcurrants, sprinkling of mixed dry herbs.
In The Vineyard
The fruit for this Cabernet Sauvignon come from solely from 15 year old Hoopenburg bush vines on the farm.
About The Harvest
The grapes were picked at 23° Balling.
In The Cellar
They were destemmed but not crushed to preserve the fruit. The grapes were fermented for 3 weeks on the skins before being pressed and laid to rest in new French oak barrels for 12 months, then 2nd fill for a further 18 months. Here the malolactic fermentation occurred. The wine was lightly fined and filtered before being bottled.
