Cape Winemakers Guild

Kaapzicht Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2002

Made in stainless steel fermenters with continuous pumpovers during peak fermentation. Two sets of new barrels were used for wood maturation, with the first set used for 18 months, with one racking after 9 months. The wine was then matured in the second set of barrels for 15 months. Tasting Note: Brilliant mid to deep ruby, the rim paling and showing a garnet tinge. A Cabernet that shows all the textbook ripe berry qualities: blackberry, bramble fruit characters fleshed out with mulberry, this wine shows elegant restraint with tapered mineral tones. The oak is scented rather than sweet, showing cedar and sandalwood, and although still immature, aromas suggest pencil lead and tobacco leaf. The palate is packed with cassis fruit, mineral flintiness and top-quality wood.
