Winemaker

Jaco Potgieter

Variety

100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Viticulture

Grapes were tracked from a variety of macro-climates ranging from warmer Southern slopes, basking in long hours of sunlight to cooler pockets of vines where African Ocean breezes ensure ultimate expression of cultivar and land. Our Cape climate allows the vines to drink in the winter rainfall and ripen slowly in the warm summer season before harvesting in February at an average of 24°C.

Winemaking

Grapes are fermented on the skins for seven days at 28°C with three aerations per day. After pressing, the young wine is put on French oak staves where malolactic fermentation is completed. The wine is left on the staves for a further 3 months. A very light filtration before bottling ensures the conservation of intrinsic cultivar traits.

Jaco's Tasting notes

Rich ruby with layers of ripe forest berry and spice aromas.A gentle smooth entry with delicious ripe berry fruit flavours well married with vanilla oak notes and a smooth juicy finish.

For your drinking pleasure

An honest red wine that is ready to drink now or within a year or two. Don't wait too long. Enjoy slightly chilled with your favourite juicy steak, roast or casserole. Also great with tomato based Italian food or full-flavoured hard cheese.
