Description

Description

Winemaker: Christoff de Wet
Appellation: Calitzdorp
Grape varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Vineyards

100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are used in the production and the vines, which are planted in a sandy Gamka River soil bed, are trellised and micro irrigated.  The grapes are harvested at the beginning of March.  The grapes are handpicked at optimal ripeness between 23 – 24.5 degrees Balling.

Winemaking

A cold maceration period is allowed before the fermentation process is started.  Fermentation takes approximately five to seven days in open fermenters with constant pump overs.  After the grapes are pressed the wine undergoes a second malo-lactic fermentation after which the wine is aged in older French oak barrels, as well as in tanks with French Oak staves for 12 months before being bottled.

Winemaker’s comments

Colour: Dark plum red

Bouquet: Wonderful flavours of ripe berries and cassis with underlining hints of fresh prunes and cedar spice.

Taste: Soft elegant dark fruit of plum, mulberries, and dark cherries.  Finished by supple tannin’s and notes of cherry cigar.

Food pairing: The perfect wine to enjoy with any braai or on its own.
