Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Nestling at the foot of the Helderberg Mountain, the historic Stonewall cellar has been creating quality wines for generations. The vineyards, all bushvines, are planted in sandy loam soils which are perfect for producing wines with high fruit concentration and robust flavours.
The grapes were picked at optimum ripeness to ensure the best flavour concentration and character. After crushing and de-stalking the mash was fermented where the cap was punched down 3 times per day during the initial stages, after which the must was pressed and left to mature in a mixture of 1st and 2nd fill barrels for 18months. Only the 15 best barrels were selected for this reserve wine.
Notes of dark cherry compote underpinned by hints of sweet spices adding an abundance of complexity to this wine. The wine enters dry on the palate, yet shows some accentuated and flavoursome fruit on the midpalate. A well integrated finish with lovely fine tannins awaits!
