Once harvested, the grapes are bunch sorted and pumped into open-top fermenters. Here, Christo and the winemaking team vinify each vineyard block separately for up to a year, allowing the separate characteristics and flavours of each block to develop. Once the final blend is made up, the wine spends a further year in oak before release. The result is a Cabernet Sauvignon that brims with complexity thanks to the blended fruit from diverse terroir. It can be enjoyed young or will benefit beautifully from cellaring.

Classic Cabernet Sauvignon. Pure, focused and very well balanced, it’s a fresh, elegant expression of the variety. Aromas of blackcurrants, cassis, brambles and a hint of spearmint are complemented with balanced acidity and well-integrated tannins on the palates. Perfect with any steak cut or a hearty winter stew.
