Grangehurst Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2000

A Selection of 5 barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon from two prime Helderberg vineyards. Fermented in open kuipe and barrel matured separately for 21 months; then blended and transferred back to the same barrels for another two months. Total of 23 months in barrels – 80% French (Nevers & Troncais), 20% American oak. 120 cases of this wine were sold at the 2002 Auction. Tasting note: Dark ruby colour with slight garnet edge. Violets, red berry and cedar aromas. This full-bodied wine has a creamy palate with berry, mocha and oak flavours; the tannins have mellowed after 4 years bottle maturation since the 2002 Auction, but the structure and fruit/wood balance should enable this wine to maintain or further enhance its quality for at least another 5 or 6 years.
