Cape Winemakers Guild

Kaapzicht Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Auction Reserve 2007

Cabernet Sauvignon 80%, Merlot 20% The two cultivars were vinified and separately matured in small, 100% new French oak barrels for 24 months before being blended together. 60 cases of this wine were sold at the 2010 Auction. Tasting note: Very deep, saturated ruby colour with opaque depth in the centre; beautifully crafted with subtle berry tones and spiced dark fruit flavours firmly held by supple tannin structure. Seamless integration between plum / cassis fruit and cedary-oak tones; poised and elegant with enough power to richly reward cellaring for 5-8 years.
