KC Cabernet Merlot 2009

KC Cabernet Merlot 2009

Through the use of innovative production techniques and sourcing of high quality grapes from throughout the Cape Winelands we aim to make an approachable yet high quality wine which is ready to drink on purchase, yet will benefit from an additional few years of bottle maturation.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of ripe black berries and plums are complemented by subtle oak spice. The palate is dense, with fruit flavours balanced by well rounded, compact tannins and a lasting finish.


Maturation

This wine will be best enjoyed before 2012



Barrel Aging

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