60 in stock

Notes

91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc

Tasting notes:
Over a decade of producing this Estate wine, the wine is ever increasing in quality and becoming more consistent in expressing the terroir of the Helderberg Mountains. Wine shows off pure fruit and earthy notes complimented by a classical pencil lead aromas. A typical dry tannin structure with a seamless balance to finish. Winemaker, Mark le Roux, has rated this vintage as one of Waterford’s best to date.

Vintage conditions:
Winter was cut a little short with temperatures rising quickly in August, the growing season remained warm and dry bringing the harvest dates slightly forward. Moderate to cool conditions during ripening resulted in wines with expressive aromatics and flavours. Exceptional white and red wines from this vintage, very classic in style.

Analysis:
Alc: 13.9% RS: 2.3 g/L TA 5.6 g/L pH 3.59
