Description

Rickety Bridge The Bridge 2017

As part of the Icon Range, Rickety Bridge The Bridge is one of the best wines this winery has to offer.

Intense dark red colour. The nose reveals extraordinary notes of mint, dark cherry, tobacco, dark chocolate and cloves. On the palate, nuances of blackcurrants and red fruits are noticeable, supported by a natural acidity. Full-bodied with a smooth structure and refined mouthfeel. Finishes with an enchantingly long aftertaste that is a perfect match with a ribeye steak.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Made from an exceptional single vineyard situated against the slopes of the Dassenberg Mountain in Franschhoek. Bush vines of Cabernet Sauvignon which are planted in deep decomposed sandstone soil with underlying granite, called Scalie, on a steep (more than 35 ̊) northerly facing slope. A truly unique and exceptional terroir.

After manual harvesting, the grapes are carefully brought into the cellar crate by crate. A short cold maceration period follows, then natural fermentation takes place in a small open top fermenter at 28°C. During fermentation, the grapes get a gentle manual punching down 6 times a day. After 36 days on skins, the wine goes through a gentle pressing. Malolactic fermentation takes place in small French oak barrels and further maturation occurs in 100% new French oak barrels for 22 months.

Only the five best barrels are selected for this unique red wine. This means there is only a limited quantity available, a total of 3,520 bottles, each numbered by hand.

Fun Fact: Like all four wines in the Icon Range, Rickety Bridge The Bridge is a reference to the name of the winery – literally, because the red wine is reminiscent of the bridge that leads to the winery.

Good till 2027.
