2017 Cabernet Sauvignon / Cabernet Franc
R125.00 excl. VAT
The moderate weather pattern during the early stages of the growing season and following through till late into summer, ensured even ripening. Small berries due to the 3rd year of extra dry conditions gave concentrated berries. No wonder that 2017 is hailed as one of the best vintages of the decade.
The colour of the wine is deep, black centered. It has a smoky, dark chocolate aroma, brimming with bright fruits like mulberries and pomegranate. A hint of spice rounds off the nose. The palate is immediately accessible, dominated by ripe fruit, cedar wood and earthy tones . It is compact and neatly surrounded by oak inspired tannins. The wine matured in 70% new and 30% older 225L oak barrels for 18 months. It is still youthful, with slightly unbalanced grape and wood tannins, at odds with each other, on the finish. With time this will become well integrated.
