This 100% Simonsberg Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon shows a rich ruby colour with cassis, plum and black berries on the nose. On the palate there is a great balance and integration of fruit and oak. The wine has a strong mid-palate and offers a full, lingering aftertaste.

in the vineyard : The Muratie Cabernet Sauvignon was made from three different blocks on the estate. The vines were planted in 1981, 1993 and 1998. All the vineyards are North West facing and at an elevation of 260m above sea level. The root stock is Richter 101 and 114.

about the harvest: The grapes were handpicked yielding 6 tons per hectare.

in the cellar : They were then crushed, destalked and pumped into a combination of stainless steel and open fermenters. A controlled fermentation was ensured and regular pump-overs and punch-downs were done. Matured in 60% new French Oak for 20 months. The fruit, tannin structure and fine acidity indicates a wine of balance and finesse reflective of the Simonsberg terroir.
