Bergsig Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

“Plum and Red Berry Fruit”

Tasting Notes

An elegant wine with a deep ruby colour, plum and red berry fruit with smoothly integrated tannins. Accessible now, but structured well enough for 4+ years ageing.
Ideal wine to serve with roast meats, venison and matured cheese.

Analysis:

Alc.: 14.74%
RS: 3.5 g/l
TA: 6.2 g/l
pH: 3.52

Vinification:

2013 harvest allowed typical long hanging time on the vine. Grapes were harvested on April 2013. Slow ripening during cooler part of the season resulted in elegant, full ripe fruit and soft tannins.
Fermented in open tanks with regular pumping over. Malolactic fermentation was completed in tank before 22 month maturation in 300 Litre French barrels.
