A full-bodied, stylish and enticing Cabernet with ripe blackcurrant and smoky coffee aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with sweet cassis and blackberry fruit, smoky, spicy oak, fine grained tannins and a long finish.
Prior to crushing, the grapes were hand selected on the sorting table to ensure that only the purest fruit would be used for this wine. After crushing and three days of cold soaking, the grapes were inoculated with yeast. During fermentation the juice was regularly punched down and pumped over for maximum colour and flavour extraction. Extended skin contact was given before maturation took place in 100% new French oak barrels for 22 months. As a result of years of experimentation, this wine was aged in oak that has been seasoned for 36months.
