Cabernet Sauvignon is a perennial best seller; this Ou Kalant (old rascal) remains a firm favourite, outfoxing the others by combining New World ripe fruit flavours with Old World elegance and charm.
Tasting note: Elegant aromas of dark cherries and chocolate, followed by cassis and red fruit flavours on the palate. Ends with silky tannins and a long smooth finish.
Vinification: Fermentation took place over 5 days in stainless steel tanks with regular pump-overs. Before the end of fermentation, the grapes were pressed and put back into tank for malolactic fermentation. Fined and filtered before bottling.
Maturation & oaking: 5% matured in new American oak barrels. 25% matured in older barrels. 12 months total.
