Miles Mossop Wines Maximilian 2019

92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, 3% Merlot

A single Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard from the Helderberg, blended with a small amount of Petit Verdot and Merlot for complexity. Picked at a ripeness to express the density and structure typical of this part of Stellenbosch, while retaining freshness. Naturally fermented in a small wooden open top fermenter, then matured in 225 litre French oak barriques for 20 months, 46% being new. Bottled in December 2020.

Tasting Notes: Intense aromas of cassis and bramble fruit emanate from the glass with underlying notes of tobacco, cedar and toast. The palate mirrors the nose with a dry textured finish and lingering freshness.

Ready for drinking in 2029.
