DOUGLAS GREEN CABERNET SAUVIGNON, SOUTH AFRICA
Intense blackcurrant succulence
Wine of Origin Western Cape (Swartland and Robertson)
2015 produced vibrant red wines with velvet tannins and good
phenolic ripeness as a result of even ripening over a long mild
period of harvest. Grapes were selected from the Swartland region
for chunky tannins and expressive fruit to complement the finer
structure of the fruit from the Robertson area.
Fermented on the skins at 24 - 28°C until dry. After pressing, the
young wine was allowed to complete malolactic fermentation
on French oak staves, then left for a further 3 months of wood
maturation. Final blending and bottling takes place at our cellars
Deep ruby with a bright edge. Intense dark berries and
blackcurrant aromas with attractive gentle smoky oak notes. A
succulent medium bodied entry with delicious winterberry flavours
supported by well-defined ripe tannins for a softly textured juicy
finish that lingers.
A supple Cabernet Sauvignon with vibrant fruit and soft tannins
allowing for easy drinking on its own or with your favourite sizzling
steak, meaty roasts with rich gravy, hearty stews or tomato based
Italian food. Drinking well now or within 3 years of vintage.
Residual Sugar: 4.0g/l
Total Acid: 5.8 g/l

Very occasionally, a wine may suffer from cork taint, the unpleasant effects of a faulty closure. Cork taint is more common in bottles with a traditional cork closure, and is recognisable by a damp, rotten wood or rotten cardboard smell. It’s often quite pungent, and immediately detectable when opening a bottle for the first time. If you get a bottle you think is tainted, contact us and we’ll replace the bottle for free within 48 hours or give you a full refund – whichever you prefer.
