Wines / Quails' Gate / Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon

Our Cabernet Sauvignon is made to produce a wine that is balanced and complex, with a lush mouthfeel and a long smooth finish.

Tasting & Pairing

The 2014 vintage was a particularly good one with plenty of warmth and sunshine, ideal conditions for Cabernet Sauvignon. The resulting wine is smooth, rich and full bodied with notes of ripe black fruits, cassis, cocoa, spice and vanilla. The wine has a rich mouthfeel with nicely integrated tannins and a long finish. We suggest pairing with chargrilled steak, roast lamb and other braised meats. Some aged hard cheeses also compliment this wine perfectly.

Winemaking

The grapes were harvested in October from our estate vineyards on the slopes of Boucherie Mountain surrounding Quails’ Gate winery. Hand-picked and fermented with indigenous yeasts for 28 days. Barrel aged for 18 months in French oak, this wine can be enjoyed right away but will reward careful cellaring up to 2022.
