Stellenbosch has become synonymous with complex expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon. We proudly offer our Bottelary interpretation of this king of reds. True to its flagship nature, this wine is made in concentrated and powerful style
This wine boasts a generous nose of graphite, blackcurrants and dusty herbs. Elegant dark fruits and an intense perfumed nose makes this icon truly special. A fine grain of tannin gives tension and grip to this elegant Stellenbosch King.
IN THE VINEYARD:
From the only North-West facing slope on the estate, promoting a cooler micro-climate. Vines planted in 2001 on weathered granite soils.
IN THE CELLAR:
This Stellenbosch icon is hand-harvested and fermented until dry on skins after the must was inoculated with a cultured biodynamic yeast. The vineyards are on the only North-West facing slope on the farm, thus promoting cooler ripening temperatures. The wine is pressed gently and stored in tank until after malo-lactic fermentation is complete. Thereafter the wine is aged for 18 months in a mixture of 52% new, 35% second and
3% third fill barrels
