KC Cabernet Merlot 2006

The KC range is made with the modern consumer in mind. Through the use of innovative production techniques and sourcing of high quality grapes from throughout the Cape Winelands.

2006 KC Cabernet Merlot is made in an approachable style using a combination of modern maturation techniques and traditional barrel ageing. The focus is on delivering accessible fruit flavours yet retaining elegance.

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby in appearance, the nose is filled with ripe, briary fruit where black currants and plums jostle alongside fine woodspice and cocoa notes. The palate is richly layered with full bodied tannins and waves of dense berry fruit, persisting in a long flavourful finish.

Maturation

This wine will be best enjoyed before 2010

Barrel Aging

Fermentation and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks and French oak barriques. Selected components were matured using micro-oxygenation techniques, whilst the remainder were barrel matured for a period of 24 months.
