Description

The deep and intense red coloured Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits sweet, ripe red fruit aromas and a hint of vanilla. On the palate it shows very ripe bramble fruit, outstanding freshness and a good acidity. Round, well-developed tannins with a layered finish and long aftertaste highlights the potential and ageability of this young wine.

Winemaking Notes

Following the early morning harvest a pre-fermentation, four-day cold soak period was completed. After this the wine underwent a fifteen-day fermentation period after being inoculated with commercial yeast. Daily pump-overs were done during this time and the wine was then pressed off to barrel where the wine completed
its malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged in a combination of new (30%) and older (70%) French oak barrels for 15 months.
