Stellenbosch, South Africa
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
The dry 2015 weather led to one of the healthiest seasons in years with very little loss. Warm weather resulted in earlier bud break and a dry and windy summer regulated growth accelerating ripening. Wines
were above average in quality with exceptional analysis and flavour.
The grapes from Delaire Graff Estate’s mountain vineyards were handpicked in the early morning.
This wine was produced with meticulous care. Grapes were hand sorted. Whole berry fermentation and basket pressing ensured gentle extraction of fruit. A rigorous selection process identified on the best 5 from 35 barrels. The wine was matured in 80% new oak for 20 months.
