A Classic - A crowd pleaser for all of winter's pleasures.
Soft tannins and luscious berry flavours make this Cabernet Sauvignon an easygoing red ideal for impromptu braais and burgers. Pasta more your style? It’s great with tomato-based sauces like marinara and Bolognese too! After all, pasta without red wine just ain’t pasta.
Bright blackberry and blackcurrant fruit supported by cedar spice and dark chocolate introduces a rich, smooth palate with dense tannin and a refreshing finish.

TERROIR / SOIL
The soils are a combination of decomposed granite and sandstone, which contribute structure and fruit concentration, respectively.
VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS
The trellised vines range in age from 9 to 20 years. The climate varies greatly due to the 20 to 100 km distance from the cold Atlantic Ocean. This allows the winemaker to make different styles of wine from the same grape, blending these for a more complex taste.
Grapes were harvested at optimal ripeness, de-stemmed and crushed to stainless-steel tanks. Alcoholic fermentation lasted up to 12 days. Malolactic fermentation was done with 20% of the wine in neutral French-oak barrels and the remainder in tanks with French-oak staves to complement the wine’s flavour profile and length.
