Eikendal Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

This Cabernet Sauvignon is full-bodied and elegant. The nose is full
of ripe red and black berry and fruit, with hints of tobacco,
chocolate, mint and spice flavours. The palate shows sophisticated
oak integration and lively acidity, with firm tannins that are drinking
well, but will reward with further ageing.. All in all an intriguing wine
that is layered, well structured and very versatile.

Enjoy with serious beef roasts, oxtail, venison rilletor a chocolate mousse.

in the vineyard : These vineyards have a north-westerly aspect and about 170m
above sea level, grown in the Peroldt five-wire trellising system on
decomposed Koffieklip (“Coffee Stone”). The Cabernet
vineyards comprise about 15 hectares of the 55 planted on the
farm.

about the harvest: The 2007 vintage is characterised by the excellent colour and fruit
intensity, as well as rolling heat waves. The reds wines from
Stellenbosch are no exception, with small concentrated berries in
the vineyards that ripened to perfection, resulting in wines with
great finesse· The individual Cabernet Sauvignon blocks were
picked early morning to avoid the worst of the heat wave.
