2012 Cabernet Sauvignon

2012 Cabernet Sauvignon

After a relatively dry winter and warm growing season, careful attention had to be paid to both the canopy and crop management. This was to ensure that the vine did not stress too much, yet enough to obtain small berries to ensure good concentration and balance in the final wine. While the season was a bit warmer and drier, our well drained soils still had enough clay content to have excellent water retention capacity and this combined with our Southerly facing slopes, at the top of the hill, ensured a long even ripening of the grapes with good flavour and colour development.
