Rust en Vrede Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

The vineyard is north facing and consists of a mixture of decomposed Helderberg granite and Table Mountain sandstone, classified as a Tukulu soil type with medium growth potential. The grapes were harvested in 3 sections on 9 March and 20 March 2009 and these sections were vinified separately. Fermented in open top fermenters at 28 degrees C for 7 days, punched down 3-5 times per day and macerated for a further 14 days. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrel and the wines were matured for 19 months in 100% new French oak. Tasting Notes: An intense ruby coloured Cabernet Sauvignon with classical aromas of cassis and pencil shaving. A lovely combination of raspberry and blue berry fruits with inky savoury characters supported by the presence of subtle oak. Attractive layers of Christmas pudding, Blackforest cake, raspberry and cedar on the palate. The structure is packed with strikingly fine grained fruit tannins supported by a solid oak backbone – fine enough to enjoy but firm enough for long cellaring.
