VINTAGES

KC Cabernet Merlot 2018

KC Cabernet Merlot 2018

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. The grapes are delicately fermented, reducing extraction and creating a lighter style of wine whilst respecting the fruit and terroir. 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 appearance, the nose is filled with aromas of red cherries, plums and dark fruit. The richly textured palate is layered with spicy notes and fresh fruit supported by fine delicate tannins. Full bodied and elegant, the finish is long and punctuated.

Maturation

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