The grapes were hand-harvested in the cool of the early morning. On the sorting table, all excess stalks and inferior berries were removed. Fermentation took place in 7-ton open-top stainless steel tanks and the wines were pumped over or punched down manually 3 to 5 times per day, ensuring maximum colour extraction from the skins. Each variety is matured separately in oak barrels before final blending and eventual bottling.
Big Easy Cabernet Sauvignon
Rich ruby. Fragrant aromas of Herbs de Provence, wild rosemary, bay leaf, sorrel; leafy, savoury herbs mingle with fresh cassis, new spring plums, blackberries. Elegant oaking adds hints of ash, cedar and ground cinnamon to density of black fruit.
The palate is sappy and fine, proffering fresh red plums, blackcurrant, touch of cola and balsamic threaded with ripe, round tannins and a juicy core. Elegant yet structured, the firm tannins melt into a fresh and fruited finish. Offering great drinkability without sacrificing concentration.
