2017 Cleefs Classic Collection Cabernet Sauvignon

2017 Cleefs Classic Collection Cabernet Sauvignon


The grapes for this wine were sourced from selected parcels of fruit
from across the Western Cape. In 2017 we had a very dry winter
season and warm dry conditions early in the growing season, but
slightly cooler weather in the run up to harvest. 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 just after veraison to ensure even ripening
and a good concentration of flavours.
