cabernet sauvignon shiraz malbec
Full-bodied red wine
50,5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Shiraz, 9,5% Malbec
Hand-picked grapes from selected Cape vineyards compose this full-bodied yet velvety wine which expresses spicy aromas of coffee bean and blackberry. The rich game and berry fruit palate, fine tannins and long licorice finish make it a perfect match with any meat dish, especially game.
Harvested in the early morning from a selection of hillside and south facing vineyards. Picked at optimum ripeness (24-25 Balling) and crushed, but not destemmed, to enhance the fresh berry fruit characters. Fermented in stainless steel tanks for 7- 10 days and then a portion taken to barrel for malolactic fermentation, with the balance being completed in tank. Matured in small French barrels for more than a year before being blended and gently fined.
