Kleine Zalze Granite Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

100% Cabernet Sauvignon The grapes were hand selected on the sorting table to ensure that only the purest fruit, even berry size and 100% pit ripeness was obtained. 50% whole berry and 50% slightly crushed grapes were cold soaked for three days. Inoculated with yeast, traditionally open fermented and punched down, followed with extended skin contact period of 5 weeks. The wine was then matured for 24 months in hand selected 100% French oak barrels of which the wood was 36 months seasoned. Tasting note: Waves of deep-piled forest fruit, vegetative and gamey notes with a pure savoury tannin finish. A wine with a great length on the palate and with an alluring combination of black berries and cedar wood flavours. Drink this wine in 2020.
