Welmoed Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

Excellent deep ruby red. Nose is reminiscent of dark berry fruits with hints of nutmeg and vanillin. Very elegant, well structured palate with ripe, fine tannins and a lingering rich finish.

ageing : Very drinkable now, or comfortably keep it another 5 years.

in the vineyard : New virus-free material ensures that grapes can be picked at full ripeness resulting in complex, full-bodied wines. The vines are trellised on a 5-wire hedge system, have an average yield of 7t/ha, are grafted onto 101-14 Mgt and have an average age of 11-15 years. The vines are planted on loamy sand and weathered granite soil, on the lower slopes.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness in March.

in the cellar : The wine is fermented on the skins until dry. This is followed by malolactic fermentation. Maturation takes place in small French oak barrels for 12 months.
