Description
BlendPercent100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Cellar

Grapes were crushed and allowed cold maceration for 24 - 48 hours. It is inoculated with French yeast strains and fermented with regular punch downs for 10 days on the skins. The wine is then drained from the skins and further fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation is partially finished in barrels (only about 15%). The wine is then allowed to mature in French oak over a period of 12 months.

FoodSuggestDefinitely to be enjoyed with thick cutlets of fillet medallions served on a bed of creamy mash with a spicy pepper reduction or also a great accompaniment to rack of lamb.
Harvest

Grapes are picked between 24° to 25° Balling.

VarietyCabernet Sauvignon
Vineyard

Grapes for this wine are harvested from a combination of trellised vines from our Helderberg farm, fruit from north western slopes from our Bottelary property and eastern sloped vineyards off our Devon Valley property. Bottelary Cabernet is quite distinct in the fact that it is easily recognisable by its boegoe spice and sometimes minty character. Some say these flavours are derived from the specific Bottelary terroir, whereas others believe that these flavours are brought on by the thousands of Eucalyptus trees found in this area.
