Cabernet Sauvignon () Barrel fermented/barrel matured/wooded (staves, chips or wood rice) 2020 and older
Anna Catherina’s second name means ‘purity’, a virtue Melck valued, and one that this Simonsberg Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon seeks to express with its concentrated dark fruit (black cherries, berries and plums) underscored by fresh acidity and framed by cedar wood and spice from 18 months in French oak (10% new). Sourced from three different blocks on the estate, it’s opulent yet polished, a wine of integration, balance and great length, true to its terroir just as Melck stayed true to his beliefs.
Pairs perfectly with a tender beef fillet steak served with
Home-made potato rösti, buttered green beans, sautéed wild mushrooms & red wine jus
