Winemaker Notes

92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc

Fruit source: from 4 different vineyard blocks, mostly from our own Oude Nektar farm, but supplemented with fruit from a small vineyard in the Bottelary ward and another in the Helderberg.

The grapes for this wine are from 4 different cabernet vineyards and 2 merlot vineyards, all at different elevations. Bottled unfined and unfiltered after 22 months barrel maturation.
