FLEUR DU CAP CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Overview
The Fleur du Cap approach is unconstrained. Using only meticulously selected grapes from the finest vineyards across the Cape Winelands, the winery produces a range of wines that offer diversity of choice and diversity of taste. Essence du Cap is known for exceptional quality and wines that express their true varietal character.

Winemaking
The grapes were picked by hand at 24 to 25.5 degrees Balling. After crushing, the grapes were inoculated with selected yeast. The preserve fruit flavors, fermentation temperature was controlled at 24C to 26C. Pump-overs and rack & returns (delestage) ensured good extraction and mouthfeel. After fermentation the wine was drained off the skins. Malolactic fermentation occurred naturally. Twelve months' maturation took place in a combination of new French and American, second and third fill barrels.

Tasting Notes
This full-bodied, ruby-colored red has aromas of dark chocolate, black cherry and plums underlined by elegant wood spices. On the palate, this well-balanced wine is velvety soft yet mouth-filling with clean soft fruit and a touch of sweet oak. These complex flavors linger on the finish.

Harvest Notes
The grapes were sourced from different blocks in Stellenbosch with the bulk coming from Stellenbosch Kloof. The soils have good water holding capacity resulting in balanced growth. The vineyards are aged between 10 and 21 years.

Food Pairing
This wine pairs beautifully with spicy Mediterranean food, fish or duck.
