Cape Winemakers Guild

Kaapzicht Cape Blend Auction Reserve 2006

The three cultivars were vinified separately and the best tanks went to new French oak barrels for 24 months. Barrels from three different coopers were used. The best barrels were then selected for the blend. Tasting note: Very intense dark ruby with a brooding, black centre: massively structured with powerful tannins and serious oak treatment harmoniously woven into a tapestry of richly fruited layers. Superbly crafted with plush dark fruit and a tightly knit structure boding well for long life. A long focused finish, presently only hinting at the treasures to be revealed over the next 4-6 years and beyond.
