Hand-harvested grapes from a Single Vineyard within the Simonsberg-Paarl appellation were hand-sorted and then fermented naturally in 400l open-top oak barrels. A portion was inoculated and fermented in a small open-top stainless steel tank. After 4 weeks on skins, the un-pressed wine was transferred to 225l all new French Oak barrels for 24 months. Each barrel was rated and carefully chosen before the final cuvee was selected.
Glen Carlou Gravel Quarry Cabernet Sauvignon
The nose shows layers of ripe blackcurrants, red berries, mulberries and hints of cedar and walnuts. A balanced wine, with a flavourful palate rounded out by subtle oak spice and firm tannins.
