Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
Full-bodied and firm with notes of cassis and black fruits. A big wine with supportive tannin, best served with intensely flavoured red meats.
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, like all Kacaba wines started with hand harvesting. The grapes were hand sorted, gently de-stemmed, and left as whole berries for open top fermentation. The berries then cold soaked to extract colour, flavours and aromatics from the skins before introducing yeast to start fermentation. During fermentation, tanks were hand plunged 4 times a day to further the extraction of colour and flavour. After fermentation the wine was pressed off the skins and moved to a mixture of French and American oak barrels to complete malolactic fermentation & continue the aging process.
