Mariëtte Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Mariëtte Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Mariëtte Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
A brilliant ruby red colour. It’s a full-bodied wine with a complex nose of red fruit like blackcurrant, ripe cherries with oak spice flavours. The palate is bursting with dark fruit, plum and delicate well integrated oak. The long lasting palate ends with elegance and silky-smooth tannins. A truly well-balanced beauty that makes this a winemakers’ selection.
Note that this wine is EXCLUSIVELY available via Frogitt & Vonkel.

Other The grapes were harvested by hand into bins the morning of 26 March 2018 at 25˚B. They were cooled, hand sorted and lightly crushed then 15% of the juice was bled to get a more complex skin to juice ratio for more colour and flavour. The grapes were cold soaked for 48 hours using pectolytic enzymes to promote flavour and colour extraction. The juice was inoculated with yeast and fermentation took place for 5 days at 24-27˚C. The juice and skin were punched down every 4 hours until pressed. The wine was transferred to 225L French oak barrels for Malolactic fermentation and 36-month barrel maturation.

Food Suggestion

This complex, full bodied wine will pair well with fatty meat like braised beef ribs or sticky pork ribs. Rosemary lamb shanks, fillet with a rich balsamic glaze or gorgonzola sauce are all a perfect match for this beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon. For the sweet tooth, we will recommend dark chocolate truffles which is rich in flavour.
