Stark-Conde Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
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.
Offers a solid mix of briar, grilled sage, tobacco and dark currant fruit backed by a structured finish that shows a nice tangy iron note.
