MORE INFORMATION:
Hand-selected quality grapes are harvested at a full ripe stage (25˚B). The crushed grapes are inoculated with pure yeast and fermented dry at 26 - 28 ˚C. The grapes are then pressed and after malolactic fermentation, aged for 12 months in 100% new French oak barrels. The 4 best barrels in the cellar were selected for this Cabernet Sauvignon (50%) and Merlot (50%) blend. Full-bodied, fruity wine with black pepper, nutty and berries on the nose. The tannins are well structured and in perfect harmony. Very good ageing potential. A tribute from son (Piet) to his late father (Kosie) for showing his appreciation for his dad’s dedication to their family farm as well as their solid friendship.

Steak is always undoubtedly a must when pairing with Bordeaux blends. This wine's tannins is very well structured and compliments a more fatty dish that needs some taming. Also pairs well with hard and smoked cheeses with added pepper and cumin.
