ageing : It can be enjoyed now but will keep for up to 10 years in good storage conditions.

about the harvest: The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon was picked at optimum ripeness, with half of the fruit coming form Devon Valley and the balance from Villiera.

in the cellar : The grapes were fully crushed and fermented in pumpover fermenters at ± 25° C. Full MLF occurred in tank before blending and racking to barrels. The wine was matured for just over a year in French oak barrels (including 25 % new) before final blending and bottling.
