Vinotéque Collection: Fairview Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

R175.00

The Stellenbosch grapes were handpicked at 25° balling, destalked and crushed. A portion of the wine was then handsorted and fermented in open top fermenters. The wine was left on the skins for extended maceration before going to barrels for malolactic fermentation and maturation. The components were blended after 16 months of aging. The wine matured in a combination of French and American oak barrel, with 30% new wood used

 

Although already showing well in the glass, this wine will mature well with time, to reveal layered complexity and longevity.
