Nederburg Private Collection Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Dark ruby. Aromas of blackcurrant, cassis, dark chocolate and hints of tobacco leaves and oak spice. Ripe blackberry and currant, and a hint of oak spice with firm tannins that will soften with time. A well-structured wine that will benefit from further maturation.

Excellent with rosemary-infused lamb, petit poussin with thyme, seared AAA rump, fillet or sirloin, or Châteaubriand.

in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from two dryland sites in the Paarl and Groenekloof regions. The vineyards are grown in red/yellow Tukulu/Clovelly soils ideal for root penetration due to its good water-holding capacity and limited compactness. Both sites are low-yielding and produced small-berried, loose bunches picked at good phenolic ripeness.

in the cellar : 

The grapes were harvested at 25º Balling and each block was individually vinified. A variety of fermenters were used to create a spectrum of tannin and fruit profiles, contributing to the complexity of the wine. After fermentation, the wine was pressed and racked to barrel. Following malolactic fermentation, the wine was racked off the malolactic lees and returned to barrel. The wine was matured in a combination of new-, second- and third-fill French oak barrels for a period of 18 months prior to blending.
