Notes

'Now in its second vintage, this is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with 11% Merlot, aged in 30% new oak. Like all the Joostenberg reds, it’s distinguished by its fine tannins, elegant fruit flavours and freshness, especially for Paarl. Grassy, smooth and well balanced. 2018-23'. – Tim Atkin, Special South Africa Report 2017, 91/100

Winemaker’s commets:
‘Winemaking is not about systems and recipes. Not if you want to make distinctive wines. Everything we do in the Joostenberg winery (and vineyards) is aimed at ensuring that our wines are both delicious and true to their origin.

Since great wines begin with great grapes, our aim is to grow the best possible grapes in as ‘natural’ a way as possible – hence organics, dry-farming, etc. We then simply guide the wines through the winemaking process without the interference of unnecessary additives or modifications. Some call this ‘minimalist winemaking’.’ – Tyrrel and Philip Myburgh

Tasting notes:
Dominant cedar wood aromas and blackberry undertones immediately identify this wine as a Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate is in the classic mode i.e. medium bodied with a long finish, marked by elegant, dry tannins.
