The grapes used to make this wine are hand-selected from prized vineyard blocks in the Helderberg ward of Stellenbosch, South Africa's pre-eminent Cabernet Sauvignon producing region. Some of the reasons for this recognition as the “Kingdom of Cabernet” are the influence of mountain slopes and altitude where much of the vineyards are located, proximity to the coast,low vigour and well-drained soils (with a big weathered granite component) – all culminating in a concentrated, pure expression of the grape. Leaf thinning, green harvesting and bunch selection are a very important aspect of managing the vineyards in the lead-up to harvest. This ensures that only perfectly ripe and even grapes make their way to the cellar. The greater variation between night and day temperatures during the ripening resulted in good colour, flavour formation, concentration and intensity, which is indicative of remarkable quality wine. 

Tasting Note

The deep, dark ruby colour of this wine offers a promising glint of the intrigue that awaits inside the glass. Aromas of ripe black cherry and cassis, pencil shavings, cigar box accents and spice make an enticing entry, and linger onto the palate, where chalky tannins and a rich, textured mouthfeel also become noticeable. A well-structured and powerful wine that offers a new discovery at every sip. While it offers rewarding drinking in its relative youth, this wine will continue to age well and develop more nuance and dimension over time. It is a textbook example of the depth and staying power that makes Stellenbosch Cabernet so appealing for discerning wine lovers.

Enjoyed in Umhlanga Rocks.

Presentation of wine in the bottle is excellent. Love the seal. Big on fruit and smooth as silky the silk worm’s codpiece.

Oak and leather as a cab should have

On the noce a lot of oak, leather as cab should have. Red fruits, like cherry are very precent on the noce and the pallet.
