R1,638.00per case of 6

“2019 is the fifth consecutive dry vintage with very little rainfall.  Due to the heat and lack of rain, we picked slightly earlier to obtain better natural acidity. This vintage is also characterised by a large percentage of Grenache Noir giving the wine a lighter, fresher, fruitier feel.  The Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache Noir were all fermented in small batches in open bins with quite a lot of whole bunch and stalks in the Grenache Noir. The larger batches of Mourvedre and Shiraz were fermented in stainless steel tanks with regular pump overs. All the components were pressed directly into barrel and aged separately. Some of the batches did malolactic fermentation in barrel which gives a fuller mouth feel and structure. This vintage was in barrel for 20 months with 20% new French Oak.”
