Claime D'Or Solidus Cabernet Sauvignon 75cl

Claime D'Or Solidus Cabernet is a delicious wine at an affordable every day price - in fact it is too cheap for the excellent quality!. Soft, smooth and fruit driven with great balance. This is a perfect food wine from meaty fish to game, and even roasts.

WINEMAKING

The grapes are picked at optimum ripeness at approximately 25 °Balling (Brix). After destemming and slight crushing the mash is taken to open concrete fermenters where traditional wine making methods are still implemented. During fermentation the temperature is regulated between 25-28ºC and the cap regularly wetted by the traditional method of pushing the skins down into the must manually every two hours. This together with pumpingover of the must onto the skins allows the colour and flavour to be extracted very effectively. It takes about five days to ferment dry

and is then left on the skins for another day before racking and pressing. After malolactic fermentation starts the wine is transferred to 300 liter French oak barrels where it is left to mature for 12 months.

TASTING NOTE

Ruby hued, this Cabernet Sauvignon offers red and black berries on the nose with a herbal nuance. The palate shows juicy ripe strawberry and mulberry flavour with some spice and liquorice adding complexity. The tannins are integrated and the winefleshes out on a lengthy finish.
