WINE OF ORIGIN: SIMONSBERG, STELLENBOSCH
Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 was hand-picked at optimum ripeness, sorted and vinified from a 26 year Old bush vine block and an 18 year old trellised, dry land vineyard. The combination of these two vineyards gives great fruit, structure, complexity and depth to the wine. Grapes get pumped and plunged numerous times during a long fermentation period for maximum extraction. After fermentation, grapes were lightly pressed.
Oaking – 18 months in 40% new, 60% 2nd fill barrels. MLF was done in barrels. 95% French, 5% American oak. Polished cassis with silky tannins, ripe fruit and velvet finish.
This wine is still very young due to incredible concentration. It can however be enjoyed now with food but will improve with bottle age and can still be drunk 10 years from vintage.
Food Pairing: Red meats e.g. Venison, Ostrich, Beef, Stews.
