‘Proprietor’s’ Cabernet Sauvignon


Arguably the finest Proprietor’s Cabernet Sauvignon yet, the 2015 is a classically modern expression of this noble variety in all its glory. With a pitch black core and crimson hue, the nose is hauntingly deep and pure. Lead pencil, tomato leaf and scorched earth knit with dense cassis and deft new oak. The palate is backward in its stance, with a refined acidity melding the richly textured tannins and perfumed edge. A touch of salty liquorice, cinnamon stick and hint of vanilla, already show its superior class and complexity. It is elegant and yet structured, best decanted in its youth as it blossoms over the next two decade.

Vinification The grapes are hand-picked in the cool of early morning. Whole berries are fermented in open top tanks and barrels with intermittent pump-overs and punch downs to ensure a balance between flavour, colour and tannin extraction from the skins. All ferments are meticulously monitored during fermentation to ensure that all the natural aromas and flavours are preserved and highlighted as required. After primary fermentation some tanks and barrel will undergo extended maceration as required. Each variety is maturated separately (micro-vinified) in oak barrels before blending and eventual bottling.
