2001 Cabernet Sauvignon

The blend, being from the two oldest and unirrigated vineyards respectively, both averaging 36 years old make for a deep, rich and complex Cabernet Sauvignon with notable power and concentration. The wine was fermented in rotary fermenters before being pressed off skins and run to new French oak barriques to complete fermentation. The wines were subsequently matured for 18 months in barrel.

Winemaker Notes
WINEMAKER'S NOTES A very deep rich colour with purple hues. This wine promises a powerful and dense wine with a pronounced nose of cassis, dusty mulberries, mints, eucalyptus and dark chocolates. Flavours of cassis mingle with hints of mint and orange chocolate with rich fruit and smooth firm tannins. Splendid sweet oak and concentrated fruit wrap up a persistent and enduring finish. The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon has a long lasting potential for ageing in the cellar for 7 � 10 years.
