This vintage resulted in a moderate to high yield (9 tonne / Ha) of Cabernet Sauvignon from our vineyard this year. The fruit is 100% from our own vineyard. The wine has been matured for 22 months in 100% new French oak barrels (Taransuad Centre of France). Colour is very deep red of high intensity.
The nose is dusty cedar with black pepper. A full flavoured Cabernet with typically long pallet with lots of black forest fruit such as cassis and strong tones of nectarine and hints of chocolate. The tannins are pronounced but smooth and contribute to good mouth feel. The aftertaste is long and warm. The oak flavours are seamlessly integrated into the fruit flavours of the wine. The complexity of the nose and the smoky aromas are enhanced in the glass upon standing for a while.
