Tasting Note

As are all of Martin Meinert's wines, this is crafted with fabulous balance and flair. It has an appetising, mellow aroma of ripe blackcurrants, cream and the mearest suggestion of toasty oak. In the mouth, it has a beautifully gentle, velvet structure with precisely-judged ripeness - there is neither greenness nor overripeness; instead the fruit retains a refreshing crispness. When we tasted this as a team, we all absolutely loved it - bravo to Martin!

Winemaking

Reintroduced to our range in 2006, the only previous one being the one-off 2000, Cabernet Sauvignon has now replaced our former Bordeaux blend, Devon Crest. Our soils, which are deep and well drained with high clay content, and the low yields define our wines. Vines receive supplementary irrigation. Average yield 5 tons/ha. Fermented with natural yeasts, made in classic low intervention manner, no extended skin maceration. Aged 24 months in new, second and third fill French Oak barrels, racked at intervals as necessary. Polished with a light (half an egg per 100 litres) egg white fining and bottled in May 2012.



Food Recommendation

Should match well with Tuscan style veal, wild boar with truffled mash and of course a well-aged piece of beef, especially reduced rich sauces.

Press

  • Fresh, tangy, elegant cabernet showing minerals, fine-grained tannins, and subtle oak integration (91 points).

Customer Reviews

  • I’d give it six stars if I could.

    This wine is magnificent. It’s a classic Bordeaux style Cab Sauv, with a splash of sunny South African fruit in the mix. I’d give it six stars if I could.
