Diemersdal The Journal Cabernet Sauvignon 2021
The vines are rooted in deep red Hutton soils on north-facing slopes, catching the southerly breezes of summer and the frontal winds that punish the Cape from the north in winter. Cool growing conditions on exposed aspects, as well as the practise of dryland farming, sees the fruit develop slowly, drawing maximum variety expression on the vine. The result is tight bunches of small berries, ideal for making wines of structure, elegance and refinement.
After 22 months of aging, a barrel selection of Cabernet Sauvignon was made by the 6th generation winemaker. Typical blackberries, cedar and cigar box flavours with hints of spiciness. Blackcurrant follows through onto the palate with firm ripe tannins and a delicate finish.
