Cape Heights Cabernet Sauvignon is fantastically good value and shows many of the characteristics of this well-respected grape variety. Bursting with bright bramble fruits, smooth and succulent on the palate and and slightly savoury, herby finish. Delicious! The Cape Heights range offers fantastic value for money and this is no exception!

The grapes for this Cabernet Sauvignon are sourced from vineyards that border the warm Swartland/Wellington area and also the Breede Rivier Valley. The vast variety of soils gives the final wine an interesting complexity. As the vines are over 25+ years old, lower yields of 6-8 tonnes/ha help to deliver flavoursome, concentrated fruit and the berries are picked when fully phenologically ripe. The grapes are destemmend and crushed, with a slow start to fermentation at a low temperature 17C then gradually increasing after three days to 22 - 24C for full fermentation. Pump-over takes place twice daily to wet the cap and aerate the fermenting wine. Wine is fermented down to 5 g/litre residual sugar and pressed before being pumped back into stainless steel tanks. This ensures soft tannins and no-over extraction of any harsh tannins. Malo-lactic fermentation follows and the wine is kept on the lees until bottling.
