ageing : Firm structured tannins and a long finish on the palate show good ageing potential.

in the vineyard : 

Soil Type: Malmesbury Shale on deep red clay. Produced from four outstanding clones of Cabernet Sauvignon planted on different sites in the Stellenbosch area.  
Made with more than a nod to the classic wines of the Medoc in the Bordeaux region, showing the period of time David Finlayson spent working at world renowned Chateau Margaux.

about the harvest: 

Harvest Date: Late March 2017.
All grapes were hand picked and fermented in Stainless Steel Tanks.

in the cellar : 

All grapes were hand picked and fermented in Stainless Steel Tanks. A traditional punch down every 4 hours is used to extract the fine tannins and colour from the skins. Maturation took place in French oak barrels for 14 months.

Wood Elevation: 20% New French Oak - Nevers, Allier;  Medium Toasted, 60% Second Fill 300L French Oak, 20% Third Filled French Oak.
