On the nose, this wine shows well integrated sweet-fruited cherry fruit with blackberry flavours following through to the palate with great length. An alluring combination of blackberries and cedarwood flavours delivers a lingering aftertaste.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon
This full-bodied wine will complement a variety of red meat dishes especially game and ostrich, barbecued lamb chops and rump or T-bone steak. It can also be enjoyed with matured Blue cheese.
This Cabernet Sauvignon block right on the top of the hill of the Kleine Zalze farm consistently deliver the grapes for our Family Reserve wine. The water retention on this lime/clay soils ensured that optimum moisture were provided for the 2007 ripening vintage period. The conditions of the harvest resulted in small berries that produced concentrated fruit flavours and gave the wine its deep red colour.
Grapes were hand-harvested at optimum ripeness, which was reached at 25°B, to ensure full bodied fruit, ripe and juicy tannins.
Prior to crushing, the grapes were hand chosen on the sorting table to ensure that only the purest fruit would be used for this wine. After crushing and three days of cold soaking, the grapes were inoculated with yeast. During fermentation the juice was regularly punched down and pumped over for maximum colour and flavour extraction. Extended skin contact was given, before maturation took place in 100% first fill French oak barrels for 20 months.
