Critics Ratings

100% single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyard is north facing and consists of a mixture of decomposed Helderberg granite and Table Mountain sandstone, classified as a Tukulu soil type with medium growth potential. The Cabernet Sauvignon clones 163 and 46 were grafted onto 101-14 rootstock and the vineyard was planted in 2000 and yielded 4.75 tons / hectare in 2009. The grapes were harvested according to NDVI growth patterns in 3 sections on 9 March and 20 March 2009 and these sections were vinified separately. Fermented in open top fermenters at 28 °C for seven days, punched down three to five times per day and macerated for a further 14 days. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrel and the wine was matured for 19 months in 100% new French oak barrel. 1,008 bottles were bottled on 9 Dec 2010. Winemaker: Coenie Snyman. 168 cases produced, 60 cases on offer at the 2011 CWG auction. RS 1.9 g/l, TA 6.8 g/l, pH 3.69.

Very dense and solid and sophisticated. Super dense and dry on the end with polish and ripe fruit.’ – Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, 17.5/20 (Sep 2011)
