2016 Cabernet Sauvignon

2016 Cabernet Sauvignon

The majority of the grapes for this wine were harvested from our well established vineyards on the Groote Zalze and Kleine Zalze farms, boasting Clovelly and Oakleaf soils with good water retention. The balance are sourced from selected sites across the Western Cape. In 2016 we had a very dry winter season and warm dry conditions during the growing season. It was for this reason that very careful attention was paid to our viticulture practices to ensure optimum ripening conditions in the canopy and to achieve physiological ripeness. As always, a very careful ‘green harvest’ was carried out at veraison to ensure even ripening and a good concentration of flavours
