The Roos Family Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine for the long run. Made in a classical style, this Cabernet Sauvignon has the potential for decades of ageing. Dark colour, cloves and lead pencil nose, tannin still tight at this stage, should start to open a year or so after bottling. A great companion for lamb shank or oxtail.

From the vineyard

The vineyard is located 150m above sea level on a north-west facing slope in the Bottelary Hills of Stellenbosch. Gravel soil offers less vigorous growth which, together with sufficient heat due to the slope and altitude, leads to ideal ripening conditions for fully ripened grapes.

Training method: 5-wire vertical trellis

Harvest date: 27 March 2019. Harvested by hand.

Yield: 5.49 tonnes/ha and 32 hl/ha

In the cellar

Fermentation took place over 7 days on the skins in closed tanks at 20 – 25 0C, pumped over every four hours. Extended skin contact took place for 10 days. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation occurred.

Barrel profile: Specially selected barrels. Wine was aged 24 months in 300L and 225L French oak barrels, 25% new, the balance 3rd and 4th fill.

Bottling: 03 September 2021 at Mooiplaas
