Hoopenburg Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

The wine displays a dense opaque colour. A beautiful expression of ripe black berry fruit with hints of violets.  With aeration, the aromas evolve and notes of blueberry coats the nose with perfume aromas of dried fynbos and traces of aniseed. The tannins are well integrated. On the finish the tannins create a dryness, while the fruit expose sweetness that lingers on the palate.

Wine Information

The origin of these grapes stems from a 15 year old bush-vine vineyard in the Stellenbosch region. Harvesting took place at a balling of 25°.  Destemmed whole-fruit skin fermentation was allowed for three weeks, where-after pressing and ageing in new (20%), second– and third-fill French oak barrels occurred. Light fining, filtration and bottling followed afterwards.
