Organic Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2023

R95.00

The Vineyard

There are 6 different Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot clones on different sites on the farm that are aged separately; only the finest performing clones are blended and bottled. The South facing vine- yards are planted in the east to west vine row directions and the prevailing cool westerly breezes offf the Atlantic Ocean clear the vines of any potentioal deseases and have an amazing cooling effect. This creates a day/night temperature differential which stimulates better colour and in gen- eral create optimal plant conditioning and slower ripening, resulting in better fruit retention and more complex, fruit-driven wines.

Winemaking

During alcoholic fermentation frequent pump-overs and aeration were done on the must to ensure good colour and soft tannin exctractions which enchances the complexity, length and mouth feel of this wine.

Tasting

Deep dark red colour with ripe red berries and vanilla on the nose, crushed peppercorn aromas with a long lingering finish.

Food Pairing

Beef brisket, Beef Wellington or a hearty Beef Casserole.
