Cape Winemakers Guild

Kumkani Cradle Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

The fruit is from a single hillside vineyard in the Bottelary area. Full ripe fruit was hand picked during the second week of March 2005 and fermented in stainless tanks for 10 days. After fermentation, the wine was aged in 300 litre French oak barrels for 21 months. This wine was selected from the best barrels and lightly filtered at bottling. 100 cases of this wine were sold at the 2007 CWG Auction. Tasting note: Dense, dark red colour. Fresh blackcurrant and ripe berry fruit on the nose. The palate is layered with ripe fruit and oak flavours and a soft tannin structure.
