This is the fifth vintage of this vine after re-planting the vineyard. Our idea has always been to make what is basically a single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from this unique vineyard - although it is not a true single-vineyard in that we have blended in barrel selections of the best of our other Bordeaux varieties. The Cabernet has a very intense cassis aroma with unique citrus-rind notes. It has a firmer tannin structure than many of our wines, but still with the elegance for which Jonkershoek Valley wines are known.
The 2019 was the fifth year of our ongoing drought, but paradoxically it was not a particularly warm growing season with no really severe heat spikes. The yields were extremely low with good fruit quality. The grapes were able to be harvested at relatively low sugar levels and produced wines with lower than average alcohol levels and excellent balance between fruit, acidity and tannin.
Varietal Composition: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petit Verdot
