Stellenrust Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

One can describe this wine as highly concentrated with a good extract, but we still prefer describing the wine only as a pure Cabernet Sauvignon. Mint chocolate aromas well complimented by moccha flavours. Soft elegant tannins on a full bodied mouthfeel - toasting of barrels evident on aftertaste providing structure and boost to strong fruit extraction and bringing this titan of berries to its rightful place.

in the vineyard : 

This wine shows why Cabernet Sauvignon is still the father of all grapes – a focussed and pure wine with no playing about, but a wine made to show what Cabernet Sauvignon is known for.

Made from a mixture of fruit from both the Eastern and Western sides of Stellenbosch where we have vineyards. The Bottelary side (west) known for sweeter fruited Cabernets whereas the Helderberg side (east) known for deeper concentrated green flavoured Cabernets.
