Confessions of a White Glove Chaser 2015

21.59

This wine started with the 2013 harvest being a straight Cabernet Sauvignon from the Helderberg in Somerset West. With this release, the 2015, I wanted to take the wine a step further. In South African winemaking history, winemakers used to add Cinsaut as blending component to add freshness and length to Cabernet. So the 2015: Mainly Cabernet with quite a bit of Cinsaut. And to fill out the mid pallet: some Blaauwklippen road Malbec and Helderberg Cabernet franc. A really great wine. Fully drinkable now but will only start to reveal its true colours in a year and will age well for years to come.
