What about the grapes? 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petit Verdot
And the vineyards (terroir): The heart of this blend comes from a Cabernet Sauvignon clone 46 vineyard, situated on a south westerly facing slope 150 – 200m above sea level, playing a big role in the aromatic potential and fruit density on the palate. The Petit Verdot comes from Zevenrivieren in the Banghoek Valley and is grown in rocky clay soils that adds mid palate weight and tannic finesse to the blend. The different sites each offer an element to the wine that adds complexity and definition to the wine.
How was it made: The components were sorted and whole berry vinified in open top fermenters with regular pump overs to ensure optimal extraction. The components for this blend were aged separately in 60% new, 20% 2nd and 20% 3rd fill 300L French Oak barrels for 18 months.
Should this wine age / mature: This wine has excellent aging potential and will develop beautifully between 5 – 10 years.
