A classic Cabernet for great enjoyment.

in the vineyard : From our premium vineyard. East-West row direction, with well drained sandy soil.

about the harvest: Grapes were picked by hand.

in the cellar : Whole bunch sorting done at the cellar. This added to the quality of the final product. Cold soaking was done for two days, extracting colour and aromas early on in the process. A slow fermentation, as well as extended time on the skins further enhanced wine quality. After malolactic fermentation, the wine was racked to 300l barrels of which 40% new French oak predominantly. The wine matured for 12 months after which it was filtered and bottled in May 2018.
