Bloemcool Hou Moed

R450.00

 

Brick red in appearance and a medley of berries, liquorice and tea leaves on the nose, this remarkably full-bodied and fruit expressive Cabernet Sauvignon is ably supported by oak notes. The royal, complex palate brings fine, ripe tannins, making this a very age-worthy wine.

Total production: 797 bottles

Wine Info
Description

The Stellenbosch grapes were handpicked and transported to the cellar early in the morning. The wine was destemmed and lightly crushed before fermentation in open top wooden vats. After fermentation the wine aged in 100% new French Oak barrels for 12months and then it was racked and aged a further 12 months in another new French oak barrel (200% new oak). Only 3 barrels were selected for their exceptional quality and expressive classic Stellenbosch Cabernet character. Racked and lightly filtered on the way to bottling and allowed to age for 2 years in bottle before release.
