The fruit for this Cabernet Sauvignon come from solely from 15 year old Hoopenburg bush vines on the farm.
About The Harvest
The grapes were picked at 23° Balling.
In The Cellar
They were destemmed but not crushed to preserve the fruit. The grapes were fermented for 3 weeks on the skins before being pressed and laid to rest in new French oak barrels for 12 months, then 2nd fill for a further 18 months. Here the malolactic fermentation occurred. The wine was lightly fined and filtered before being bottled.
