This Cabernet Sauvignon is an elegant wine with a deep garnet colour. Traditional cigar box and blackcurrant flavours are complemented by complex layers of rich dark- spice smokiness that developed during months of maturation in new French Oaks Barrels.
Mediterranean climate with ± 980mm rainfall per year. The Estate is located in the upper slopes of the Breede River Valley at 240 - 350m above sea level. Winters are cold with snow until late in Spring. Significant temperature variation with warm days ensures good sugar development while the drop in temperature at night preserves the balance of natural acids in the grapes.
Matured in 300 litre barrels to create a wine with soft tannins
