La Petite Ferme Cab Sauv 2018 Rewards

Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 - ZAR240

Winemaker's notes
Wine of origin Franschhoek (all grapes from La Petite Ferme). The Cabernet Sauvignon shows itself in a beautiful garnet colour. Firm ripe tannins in its youth. Violets and cassis leading into dense ripe blackberry and plump fruit. The wine has been wooded in French oak barrels which lends itself to the pencil shaving and cigar box characteristics on both the nose as well as the palate. Enjoy it now or cellar it until 2027.
Winemaking
Picked between 25.0-25.5 balling. Fermentation in open fermenters for 10 days and is cap punched down manually every 5 hours. The wine is matured in 225L French oak barrels for 14 months in 35% new oak.
