2012 Reserve Collection Cabernet Sauvignon

2012 Reserve Collection Cabernet Sauvignon

All the grapes were harvested from our Groote Zalze and Kleine Zalze farms. The 2012 vintage will be remembered for even ripening and very small berries. The south-westerly winds and the cool ripening season allowed the fruit to reach optimum ripeness at harvest. The long ripening period led to the development of good Cabernet Sauvignon fruit flavours. This ensured that pure varietal fruit, with high notes of spice and elegance, developed in the grapes and the terroir identity of cool ripening grapes were sensoric visible. Through greenharvest the crop were reduced to 5 tons/ha thus giving even ripened grapes throughout the vineyard.
