AWARDS
2016 Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show - American Express Trophy for Best Cabernet Sauvignon, Old Mutual Trophy for Best Red Wine Overall

ageing : The wine is suited for aging of 6-10 years.

in the vineyard : The dry 2015 weather led to one of the healthiest seasons in years with very little loss. Warm weather resulted in earlier bud break and a dry and windy summer regulated growth accelerating ripening. Wines were above average in quality with exceptional analysis and flavour.

about the harvest: The grapes were handpicked in early hours of the morning from Delaire Graff Estate’s mountain vineyards. All grapes were extensively hand sorted to ensure only the best quality is used for wine making.

in the cellar : The wine was produced with meticulous care – hand sorting, whole berry fermentation, gentle extraction of fruit, basket pressed, matured in 80% new French oak barrels and a rigorous selection to decide on only the best.
