A PASSION FOR PERFECTION

Winemaking

This wine consists of only one cultivar, Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes were handpicked and grapes were selected out of our best block of Cabernet Sauvignon.  The grapes came in at 25 Balling, were destemmed and cold maturation lasted 48 hours.  After cold maturation, the pulp was inoculated with a yeast strain and fermentation took place for a period of 21 days at a temperature of 25C.  In this 21 day period regular (4 times per day) pump overs were exercised.  The juice was pressed when the fermentation finished witch paved the road for Malolactic fermentation to start and finish in 13 days.  The wine matured in 100% French oak barrels for a period of 24 months.  After maturation, the wine was prepared for bottling.
