Springfield Estate Wholeberry Cabernet Sauvignon
Such a brilliant winery - individual, high quality, delicious.. leading the way for all of South Africa wineries
Smooth full-bodied red wine has velvety soft tannins, with classic aromas and flavours of blackcurrant, fruits of the forest, vanilla and warm spices.
Grape Variety:Cabernet Sauvignon
True to the name “Whole Berry” the grapes used to make this wine are fermented uncrushed. Fermentation lasts 2-3 weeks, with punching down and pumping over occurring 3 times daily to aid colour and flavour extraction. 100% malolactic fermentation is carried out. The wine is then matured in second fill French oak barrels for 1 year before bottling. The wine is bottled without filtration or stabilisation and ages in bottle for at least 1 year before release.
Springfield Estate goes against the grain in order to make sure the drinking experience is perfect at the consumer end and sustainable at its end. The wines are all about the rocky, unforgiving terroir of Robertson, and stand head and shoulders above most producers for sheer quality.
