  • TASTING NOTE: Deep ruby in colour. Notes of cassis, black cherries, raspberries and cinnamon. The palate is medium bodied, with fleshy dark fruits and spice, a dusty, textured mouthfeel, fine tannin and a savoury finish.
  • ABOUT THE WINE: The vineyard is a 2 hectare block of bush vines on a granitic ridge high up on the estate. It faces completely south and is therefore exposed to the prevailing summer breezes off the ocean to the south and sheltered from the heat of the afternoon sun. This allows for extended hang time of the fruit without it becoming overripe. The vines are 20 years old and yielded 5 tons per hectare for this vintage. The grapes are hand harvested and then sorted on a conveyor belt in the cellar. The majority of the wine is fermented uninoculated in 7000 litre French oak tanks. 30% of the stems are added back to the tanks. This portion spent 14 days on the skins before being drained. A small component (15% in the final wine) was fermented using carbonic maceration which brings freshness and lifts the fruit on the final wine. Maturation takes place in 225 litre French oak barriques for 18 months. 30% new oak is used with the remainder made up of second and third fill barriques. The wine is then racked to a large concrete tank where it is allowed to mellow for 6 months before being bottled. Unfined and unfiltered.
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: Remhoogte is a family winery run by brothers Chris and Rob and their father Murray Boustred. Their vineyards are located on the foothills of the Simonsberg mountain, Stellenbosch. Their wines are a product of diverse, ancient soils, steep slopes and winds off the cold Atlantic Ocean. Vines have been grown on the estate since 1812. Initially the vineyards were all planted in the valleys and lower slopes on the property and it wasn't until the mid 1990's that they began uprooting the lower vineyards and planting slopes higher on the property, in search of better drained and cooler sites. All varieties have been carefully paired to the site on which they are planted. The vineyards vary in age from just planted to 36 years old. Varieties planted are Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, Syrah, Merlot, Pinotage, Chenin Blanc and Riesling. Viticulture and winemaking are very considered and minimal, with nothing added to the wines during vinification except a small amount of sulphur at bottling.
