MARKLEW CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2010

This Cab is great. It has just been chosen by South African Airways for the First Class Lounge. The 6th time in 7 yrs. Quite an accolade. I really rate this as a good Cabernet. Its full and fruity with dark Berries. Great balance of tannins and very smooth. The more I drink it the more I rate it. Could quite easily be sold for over Dkk 200. But then again - we´re Mat's Vineyard- Mathew

Winemaker Duan Britz’s notes: Well toned muscularity, classic cassis/mulberry concentration with dry insistent tannins which yield to memorable finish. Can be enjoyed now but will improve with bottle age and can still be drunk 10 years from vintage

Climate/Terroir: Mediterranian.

Soil: Red Hutton

Vinification/Maturation: Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 was hand picked at optimum ripeness, sorted and vinified from a 19 year old bush vine block and an 11 year old trellised, dry land vineyard.The combination of these two vineyards gives great structure, complexity and depth to the wine.

Grapes get pumped and plunged numerous times during a long fermentation period for maximum extraction.  After fermentation, grapes were lightly pressed in a small traditional basket press. Oaking – 12 months in 40% new, 60% 2nd fill barrels. MLF done in barrels.  95% French, 5% American oak.
