Cape Blend

R160.00R200.00

We are delighted with our interpretation of the Cape Blend. The wine has a wonderful balance of complex red and black fruit, with a lively acidity and youthful tannins. A moreish red wine.

Description

The grapes were handpicked at phenolic ripeness and stored at 10 °C to ensure the finest flavor and freshness. Upon crushing, a temperature of 10 °C was maintained and both skins and juice were left in contact in French oak tanks for 10 days. Varying from stainless steel, this approach provides improved color and flavor stability. Upon fermentation, flavour and color is allowed to develop for a period of 4 weeks before the wine is transferred to 100% French oak 225l barrels for 16-22 months. The use of French oak allows the wine to retain certain flavors and extract tannin from the oak, resulting in a fuller mid pallet.
