The Winemasters ensemble, comprising a top-quality range of varietal offerings, is named to honour the Paarl winery’s long-established tradition of winemaking excellence. These classically styled, food-friendly wines with abundant fruit flavours, elegance and finesse, treasure the integrity of the grapes in every step of the wine-growing and winemaking journey. Every drop demonstrates an unwavering commitment to world-class vineyard and cellar skills.

This wine is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) and Merlot (40%) grapes.

in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from vineyards across the Western Cape. The viticulturist works hand-in-hand with the grape growers in managing each vineyard block to ensure the best quality fruit for this wine. The different microclimates and soil types associated with each vineyard add to the complexity of the wine.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand and machine at 23º to 25º Balling during February and March.

in the cellar : The fruit was crushed and fermented on the skins in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 25 to 28ºC for 10 to 14 days. Upon completion of malolactic fermentation, the wine was matured in contact with first-fill French oak for a period of 24 months.
