Tasting Notes

Aroma: The nose shows upfront black currant and ripe strawberries with hints of cedar wood and vanilla from the wood ageing.
Flavour: Typical example of an elegant Helderberg region Cabernet Sauvignon with fruit following through from the nose. Grippy tannins give the wine backbone and leaves the taster with a well-balanced, full-bodied experience. Good ageing potential.

About The Harvest

Harvested at full ripeness (23.5°B) from three of our finest blocks.
Harvest date: March 2013


In The Cellar

The grapes were destemmed and cold-soaked for 2 days before fermentation. Regular pump overs gave optimal colour and flavour extraction. After malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged in second-fill French Oak barrels for 18 months before bottling.

Bottling date: 1 August 2016
