    Spicy notes on the tongue. Cigar box nose. One of the Cab’s I have enjoyed most in a long time. Sunday lamb roast found its companion!
    Tasted this wine for the first time sitting in a cosy Milkwood forest, made the experience worthwhile.

Wines for the Wild

WinemakingStyle

Harvested on the 27th of March, 2020 on a chilly, cloudy day at 23.6 degrees balling. Grapes were de-stemmed (not crushed) and moved to closed, stainless steel fermenter and inoculated with a Bordeaux style yeast. Pumpovers for soft, silky extraction took place twice per day for 10 days. At this point, free run wine at 2 balling was put in barrel to finish alcoholic and malolactic fermentation.

The CauseWildlife Impact

R300,00 from every case goes to the African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary.

APSS provides temporary care to diseased, displaced, injured, oiled and abandoned marine birds with special focus on the endangered African penguin. Marine bird rescue, rehabilitation and releases part of the conservation management plan to stabilize and maintain population numbers.

Rehabilitation is a re-active but important intervention. Every single penguin saved through rehabilitation contributes to the conservation effort, to prevent the extinction of the African penguin.
