This wine is a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cinsault, 14% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet franc from specially selected vineyard sites around the Stellenbosch region.Fermentation takes place in wooden open top fermenters without the inoculation of yeast and lasts for up to 3 weeks. After fermentation the wines are pressed to barrel for malolactic fermentation after which they are racked and returned to barrel for further maturation for up to 18 months. No new wood is used so as to retain the freshness and purity inherent in the grapes. Red and black bramble fruit with hints of Karoo bush and cedar. The palate mirrors the aromas on the nose with a stunning sweet red fruit core and a dry textured herbal character leading to a clarity in the mouth on the finish.
