Kaapzicht Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot Auction Reserve 2007

The cultivars were vinified separately in red wine fermentors. Pump overs were done 3 times a day. The cultivars were matured separately in French oak for 24 months before being blended together. Tasting note: Dense, plum coloured with a brick red rim. The nose shows subtle berries with prominent red cherry fruit and a hint of fragrant violet. The palate is in complete harmony with softly-rounded dark berry fruit, fleshy and full in body. Well integrated oak has lent some attractive cigar box touches to the wine and helped the tannins to softness and approachability.
