21 Gables Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

This Cabernet Sauvignon is a full-bodied wine with a concentrated structure and opulent finish.

SOIL

Decomposed granite soils on the slopes of the Helderberg mountains.

Tasting Notes

An abundance of cassis and black cherry with concentrated oak aromas of toast and pencil lead. Full bodied wine with a concentrated structure and opulent finish.

Vinification

The grapes were picked by hand. Hand sorting ensured only the best coloured and sized fruit were chosen. Fermentation was done in a combination of stainless steel and open top oak fermenters for an extended period of 27 days and barreled down to 100% new French oak barrels for 26 months. Barrel selection was done to make the perfect blend for this wine.

Serving Suggestion

Chargrilled sirloin or rib eye. Alternatively, serve with a rich oxtail or lamb shank stew.
