Backsberg Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Spicy aromas of liquorice and vanilla mingled with blackcurrant fruit. Layers of fruit and oak tannins provide the necessary framework for ripe full fruit flavours of plum and blackberry. Complex and long, this wine has depth and power and will reward further bottle ageing.

A classic Cab that will compliment all meals when a fine red wine is called for;or to end off an evening with rich cheeses.

about the harvest: Yield 8 - 12t/ha

in the cellar : Cool-crushed and cold-soaked for a few days prior to fermentation. During fermentation, aerated pump-overs 4 times a day further help the gentle extraction of colour and tannins. Post fermentation skin contact and 18-24 months of oak-aging produce a wine that has both bold structure and sufficient weight on the midpalate.
