This is a superb 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon from South Africa.

Wholesale and retail sales are available from Connections Cafe-Bar-BQ

Winemaker’s Comments

A classic wine that is dark to almost black in colour.

On the nose the wine is complex with integrated flavours of black current, violet and cedar wood.  

The wine is very well rounded with good structure ensuring a lingering fruit driven aftertaste.  

The wine will compliment red meat dishes.

The winemaking
A single block was hand harvested during the last week of March 2011 at sugar levels between 24.8°B and 25°B.

The grapes were destemmed and cold soaked for 48 hours. After 48 hours the pulp was inoculated with selected yeast strains and fermentation took place at 28°C.

The wine was pressed at 3°B. MLF (malolactic fermentation) took place in stainless steel tanks and the wine was aged in French Oak barrels for 28 months.  Thereafter the wine was taken out of barrels and prepared for bottling.

The vineyards
The Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards of selected clones were planted between 1 997 and 1 998 in soft clovelly decomposed granite soil at an altitude of 1 70 metres above sea level. The vineyards are trellised and facing North West.
