Description

Eikendal Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Eikendal Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon is sophisticated and full-bodied. If you like a slight sweetness from young cab sauvs then this is definitely for you to drink now. On the nose is an earthiness with a hint of seaweed, and fresh notes of ripe cassis. Its strong character displays aspects of ripe berries, dark chocolate, spices, mineral, rock pool and iodine. Silky tannins await on the palate, complemented by a fruitiness and delicate oak flavours with a lingering aftertaste.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Eikendal Wine Estate vineyard in Stellenbosch. The Stellenbosch vineyards were planted in 2003 in “Koffieklip” (“Coffee Stone”) soil with a clay layer 1m deep on the lower, western slopes of the Helderberg.

After hand-picking, the grapes are cooled to 1°C. They then go through destemming in the cellar but no crushing. 10–15 days of cold soaking follows, before spontaneous fermentation with 1–2 punch downs per day. A long, slow fermentation at around 34°C, then a soft pressing. The wine settles for 1–2 weeks before going to barrel. The wine then ages for 12 months in 300 litre 30% new Burgundian Pierre du Bourgogne oak barrels. Finally is six months of refinement in bottle.
