Winemaker’s Notes

Produced from four outstanding clones of Cabernet Sauvignon planted on different sites in the Stellenbosch area. Made to exude absolute purity of varietal character and as such display true Cabernet Sauvignon cassis and blackcurrant flavours. The wine has a fresh, minty herbaceousness backed by mocha vanilla oak. Firm structured tannins and a long finish on the palate show good ageing potential. Made with more than a nod to the classic wines of the Medoc in the Bordeaux region, showing the period of time David Finlayson spent working at world-renowned Chateau Margaux.
