Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
The nose shows a complex mix of cassis, cloves, nutmeg and green Madagascan peppercorns. Deliciously ripe, dark, inky fruit, chocolate and a subtle cinnamon background. Good balance between structure and finesse on the palate. Will benefit from a few years of ageing.
Only the grapes from specific vineyard sites at La Bri are used for this straight Cabernet Sauvignon. Yields are kept low: 6 tons/ha.
Malolactic fermentation took place in barrel. Matured for 13 months in 100% French oak of which 40% was new oak.

Watsonia alba is a very striking plant, with attractive foliage and gorgeous spikes of cup-shaped white flowers. Our Cabernet Sauvignon is a very pure and powerful wine much like the Watsonia alba.
