Cape Winemakers Guild

Glen Carlou CWG Auction Reserve 2005

The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were fermented in open tanks for 10 days. Punch downs occurred three to four times per day. The Merlot was fermented in a closed tank and spent 14 days on skins after malolactic fermentation. The wines were blended and matured in new French oak barrels for 22 months. Tasting Notes Clear, deep crimson red colour. Entry on nose and palate, with wafts of ripe cherry and plum linked to tobacco leaf and cigar box characters. The palate is powerful with rich ripe mulberry fruit, vanilla spice and fruit nuances. Finishing off with a huge tannin structure.

Winemaker: David Finlayson
