Remhoogte Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
“A rare bench-mark Simonsberg-Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve made in tiny quantities. To be cherished.”
R520.00 per bottle (South Africa)
The best block of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, grown on the Estate’s highest vineyards gives rise to this classic; the only 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Remhoogte produces. Grapes are harvested and sorted by hand, ensuring only the ‘crème de la crème’ are carefully selected for this masterpiece. The wine spends 24 months in French Oak barriques giving it big tannin structure and a savoury, lingering finish. The Reserve status is limited to the five barrels identified as best of vintage. The remaining barrels are then used for their range of premium blends. This is benchmark terroir-driven Cabernet Sauvignon made in tiny quantities and offered only to a select few.
Can mature for 5 to 10 years.
