Enticing aromas of black berry with underlying notes of cedar and spice make Vry Burgher Cabernet Sauvignon rich, but elegant on the entry of the palate. Dark fruit flavours lead to a textured, triumphant finish.
The vineyards for this exquisite, classic Cabernet Sauvignon wine, were planted in 1990, in well drained gravelly soils and trellised, on the foot hills of the Helderberg Mountain. This is part of the Coastal region - close to the Stellenbosch area. The vines are irrigated twice during the hot dry summer months.
The grapes are harvested in the twilight of the summer, towards the end of March and fermented on the skins for eight days in open stainless steel fermenters. The wine then gracefully ages in 300L French oak barrels for 12 months before bottling.
Vry Burgher Cabernet Sauvignon is a consistently good product emanating from one of the best wine production areas in the renowned winelands of South Africa. It is wine lovingly crafted in the traditional way at the hand of an accomplished multiple award winning Winemaker, in collaboration with a celebrated and experienced wine producer. The wine is created and blended with the consumer in mind, offering the perfect balance between quality and price.
