Graham Beck Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Veritas 2007 - Bronze
Deep, ruby red in colour with chocolate and ripe berry fruit and hints of mint on the nose, joined by juicy mulberry and cherry fruit on the palate. Soft but firm tannins with a balanced mouth feel and long finish.

Excellent with North African dishes, spicy Moroccan tanginess, osso bucco and hearty risottos.

AWARDS
Veritas 2007 - Bronze
in the vineyard : Unique layered granite gravel soils over yellow cracking clays. Vineyards aged between 10 - 15 years old both bush vine and trellised with sea views fight soil and sea winds for low vigour. Low yielding Cabernet Sauvignon with great fruit and structure from these unique sites on our Stellenbosch farms.

about the harvest: Handpicked at optimum ripeness.

in the cellar : The grapes were crushed. Part aerated pump overs and part pneumatic punch down with extended skin contact. 15 months maturation in French barriques, 30% new and 70% 2nd and 3rd fill oak.
