Wellington ‘La Cave’ Cab. Sauvignon 2018

Wellington Wines ‘La Cave’ Cabernet Sauvignon 2018


Fruit was picked at optimum maturity and fermented dry on the skins at 25 degrees Celsius in open fermenters with regular punch downs. Full malolactic fermentation was allowed in new French barrels after which the wine was racked and SO2 added to the same barrels and aged and matured for 18 months.

Tasting Notes

Black fruit notes are entangled in nutmeg and vanilla pod aromas on the nose. The palate is filled with prominent oak and lingering dark berry undertones. Soft, refined tannins and balanced acidity result in a truly elegant wine.

Special Note

Our flagship range celebrates the early years of winemaking when wines were stored in caves during maturation and the recent discovery of a series of caves below our very own cellar. The grapes for the wines are meticulously hand-selected from the very best vineyard blocks and we gently handle the grapes in the cellar with minimal disruption. The range consists of a Chenin Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinotage, Cape Blend and Shiraz, with our red wines matured in small first-­fill French oak barrels before being bottled.
