Vineyard info/Viticulture
Cabernet Sauvignon is harvested from a vineyard in the Botteleray region of Stellenbosch. We have blended 10% Swartland merlot from Kasteelsig vineyard and 4% Shiraz sourced from out three partner vineyards.
Vinification
This wine was made from ripe grapes picked to deliver a rich flavour. Cabernet fermented in tank on a blend of French oak staves, and then completed malolactic and maturation on staves; the wine was finished off with 10% Swartland Merlot and 4% Shiraz, both of which were matured in a mixture of new and older oak barrels.
