This wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon with all the grapes coming from the Estate. On the nose you have a bouquet of Violets intertwined with aromas of black and blue berries and a hint of Tobacco. On the pallet you have an elegant tannin structure with dark berries, cassis and a long finish.

Grape Variety: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
After the harvesting of the grapes the must has been cold soaked for 7 days at a temperature of 7°C. Thereafter it was fermented for 8 days in open concrete tanks with 5 punch downs a day. Finally, the must was oaked for 12 months in French and European oak 30% new oak, 20% second fill and the rest an even split between third to fifth fill barrels.
Perfectly paired with Grilled Beef, Spareribs and Roasted Duck Breast. Braised dishes and matured cheese mate beautiful.
Drinking well now, but perfect after aging for 3-7 years.
