  • 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Grown on some of Stellenbosch’s coolest sites: One parcel of 40-year-old dry farmed bush vine Cabernet Sauvignon is planted in deep alluvial soils of Firgrove, two parcels are planted on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain and another one in the deep decomposed Granite soils of the Polkadraai Hills
  • Hand harvested and destemmed to tanks with only minimal SO2 added
  • After about 4 days the indigenous yeast fermentation began, and the wine was pigeaged or pumped-over twice a day during this period, not exceeding 28ºC
  • Fermentation lasted 10-18 days, followed by 3 weeks extended maceration, after which the wine was drained and pressed to barrels
  • Matured for 20 in 500L French oak barrels of which 30% were new

This classically aromatic & supple Cabernet Sauvignon invites with notes of mulberry, dried orange rind, Kapokbos, and pencil shavings on the nose. The palate opens to mouth-quenching cassis and fresh Sapphire plum, which are cupped by elegant, silky tannins. The richness and power of this wine are balanced by beautiful freshness and finesse.
