ageing : Ansela van de Caab is an excellent reflection of the huge influence that great terroir plays in producing red wines that has the potential to age and mature gracefully.

in the cellar : The grapes for our Ansela were all hand harvested, crushed, destalked and fermented in a combination of classic open fermenters as well as stainless steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation was done in French oak, (225l) barrels. (30% new oak). Ansela van de Caab 2004 is a blend of selected Merlot (50%), Cabernet Sauvignon (30%) and Cabernet Franc (20%). The blend is made up after each respective variety has matured for 12 months in oak. Once the blend has been made, the wine is re-introduced into French oak for a further 4 months to ensure that a good marriage takes place. The wine is bottled unfiltered to ensure minimal intervention.
