Arid Malbec – Cabernet Sauvignon
Premium artisan no added sulphur Cabernet Malbec blend from Stellenbosch South Africa
This wine is another cracker and right up there with the very best of our sulphite free reds.
Deep ruby with a powerful natural earthy nose. Big, juicy and powerful with concentrated dark fruit flavours and a very long finish.
Full and round in the mouth, velvet smooth.
This wine is something special. Very impressive presentation too in a heavyweight embossed bottle sealed with wax.

The single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is rooted in Tukulu soils, which are derived from ancient, decomposed granite. The vineyard is situated on a cooler Southern facing slope, and together with the cool Atlantic breezes it has a long ripening period which ensures the even ripening of the berries with a naturally crisp acidity. The single vineyard Malbec grows in deep alluvial Dundee soils, in the valley, where it gets frost during most winters.
Harvesting was done by hand when grapes reached phenolic ripeness for both cultivars. Fermentation lasted twelve days at lower-than-average fermentation temperatures to capture the elegant flavours and aromas. Both cultivars aged for ten months in 225ℓ French oak barrels with blending done two months before bottling. No filtration or stabilizing was done before bottling, therefore harmless sediment may occur over time.
