Grand Slam Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Grand Slam Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Our newest vintage of the Grand Slam Cabernet Sauvignon features aromas of tobacco, gooseberry, blackberry and baking spice. Medium-to full-bodied with gentle tannins. On the easygoing and juicy side of cab, but pleasantly refreshing and tasty all the same.

Majority of the grapes are sourced from vineyards on north and south-east facing back slopes of the Tygerberg hills which are typical of the prime viticultural land that characterizes the maritime Durbanville wine ware influenced by the cold Atlantic Ocean just six miles away. Cooled in summer by moisture-laden, seasonal coastal mists and south-eastern breezes, these hills benefit from a typically Mediterranean climate with generous rainfall during frost-free winters and dry, warm summers. Deep and well-drained soils capture and retain water well into the summer, creating just the right balance between moisture and stress for the vine to naturally produce healthy and flavorful fruit.


The wines are handcrafted from start to finish. Grapes are hand picked and bunches and berries undergo a second sorting, also by hand, at the cellar. Red grapes undergo maceration and gentle crushing in stainless steel tanks. Fermented at carefully controlled and varietally optimal temperatures and matured in 225l oak barriques.


A rich, ripe, full Cabernet Sauvignon with plenty of dark fruit, plums and blackcurrant flavor characteristics. Restrained use of French oak allows the fruit of this wine to remain centre stage. The oak contributes a spicy, toasty, cigar box character to the wines mid palate and finish. Supple, easy accessible tannins give this wine structure and pairs beautifully with grilled red meats, mature cheese, venison and spicy tomato based stews and pastas.
