Cabernet Sauvignon

A big-hearted wine, the Cabernet Sauvignon’s dense, concentrated colour announces rich, ripe berries on the nose and a juicy palate, tempered to perfection by gentle oak maturation.

Place in the Sun Cabernet Sauvignon is available internationally.

About our vineyards

Trellised vineyards in the Cape’s prime growing areas are cooled by False Bay sea breezes during the summer, helping to slow down ripening and concentrate fruit flavours. Grapes are hand-picked and delivered to the cellar, where they are handled very gently to preserve inherent fruit flavours.

Trellised vineyards in the Cape’s prime growing areas are cooled by False Bay sea breezes during the summer, helping to slow down ripening and concentrate fruit flavours. Grapes are hand-picked and delivered to the cellar, where they are handled very gently to preserve inherent fruit flavours.
The grapes were harvested by hand at 24˚ Balling, from the middle to the end of March, and fermented on the skins for 10 to 12 days. The juice was then racked off the skins and the skins pressed. The pressed juice was then proportionally added back to add complexity to the eventual wine. The wine was racked for malolactic fermentation to soften its texture and was gently oaked, matured for 12 months before bottling.
Colour: Dark cherry red. Aroma: Succulent plum, red and black berries on the nose with a touch of mushroom and earthy undertones. Palate: This full-bodied wine shows prominent berry fruit flavours on the palate, supported by elegant, approachable tannins
Serve with flame-grilled meats, lamb roasts and casseroles and robust cheeses. Download our Cabernet Sauvignon fact sheet
