Eikendal Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Full bodied packed with ripe red and black fruit and that hint of tobacco and spice. Strong tannin structure but elegant with the great maturation potential. Fully integrated with wood and overtime fruit will show even more. Fresh acidity that gives length and tightness to wine and helps to balance the wine. Intriguing wine that is layered, well structured and will make you dream.

ageing : Eikendal Cabernet Sauvignon is very enjoyable in its youthful style, but also has the potential to develop with interest in the bottle for another 8 - 10 years.

in the vineyard : These vineyards have a north east aspect and are up to 170 m above sea level, grown in the Peroldt five-wire trellising system on Duplex Koffieklip (“Coffee Stone”) and Estcourt soils. These vineyards comprise about 9 hectares of the total of 55 planted.

about the harvest: The individual Cabernet Sauvignon blocks were picked early morning to avoid the worst of the heat wave.
