Painted Wolf Cabernet Sauvignon
A smooth medium bodied wine with typical Cabernet flavours of black current, brambly fruit, mint and toasty oak. The wine has a lovely rich texture with a long finish, bright acidity and soft tannins, keeping it fresh and vibrant. The wine has been sealed with a screw cap to maintain its freshness.
This wine was made from ripe grapes picked to deliver a rich flavour. The wine was fermented in tank with a mixture of different French oak staves, and then completed malolactic on staves; the wine was finished off with 5% Swartland Merlot 2012 which was matured in 2nd fill French oak barrels. The wine was bottled in January 2013.
