KC Cabernet Merlot 2017

KC Cabernet Merlot 2017

The KC range offers a light, fresh and easy-drinking style of wine. Grapes are sourced from vineyards in Stellenbosch and then complimented with a large portion of our own Constantia fruit.

The grapes are carefully hand selected and harvested from our chosen vineyards. These are then brought in and pressed as gently as possible to maintain the fruit and freshness in the wine. After fermentation the wine is aged either in French oak barrels or Stainless steel tanks for up to 14 months before blending and bottling.

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby red in appearance, aromas of smokey mulberries and plums with a subtle oak spice. The palate is full bodied with an elegant balance of fruit flavours and present tannins. The wine concludes with fresh lingering finish.

Maturation

Delicious now, though will benefit from a further few years in the bottle.
