CABERNET SAUVIGNON, The Long Fuse, Jardin, Stellenbosch, South Africa
2017 Vintage | 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
To create the perfect soil environment for Jardin's Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards, many large, sub-surface granite boulders were excavated and blown-up with dynamite. One of the boulders required over 300 charges, necessitating a very long fuse.
Progressive techniques such as overhead fermenters, pump-overs and gravity flow allow for the extraction of fully-developed flavours and soft ripe tannins without compensating the tension and elegance captured from the various Cabernet slopes. Here especially, the climate plays a significant role to allow great fruit expression and its classic essences of cedar, brambles and toasted tobacco.Case price: $324.76, bottle deposits & HST included
