Perfection of Time – The La Cave story goes back a long time, to when Winemakers matured quality wines underground to protect them from extreme temperatures. Named after the Cave – like labyrinth with impressive stone arches and receding candlelit recesses,
La Cave Wines are reminiscent of a by-gone era, when the Art of Winemaking mattered most. La Cave wines are matured slowly in small first fill French oak barrels. Meticulous selection from the best single-varietal vineyard blocks, the range is made in limited volumes ensuring that only the finest quality wines are branded La Cave.
Cultivar – 100 % Cabernet Sauvignon
Style of wine – Full bodied red wine. Fruit was picked at optimum maturity and fermented dry on the skins at 25 degrees Celsius in open fermenters with regular punch downs. Full malolactic fermentation was allowed in new French barrels after which the wine was racked and SO2 added to the same barrels and aged and matured for 18 months.
