Brampton Roxton Black Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Bold and upfront Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon, the perfect wine as winter approaches.
An intense dark and deep ruby red colour. The primary aroma is of ripe black fruit, with subtle oak spice and herbs, yet showing vibrancy and depth in its fruit expression. The palate expresses the vintage by bringing together the natural firmness of the Cabernet Sauvignon coupled with a bold and juicy fruit character. This has a seamless integration of oak spice and oak tannin which adds real depth and complexity to the wine. Enjoy now for it's youthful vibrancy, this will also benefit from up to 10 years in the cellar.
Brampton are one of South Africa's leading estates. Based in Stellenbosch they follow a modern approach, creating wines which are always accessible, but are also of great quality and style, sourced from premium vineyards. The 'Roxton' wines eptimise this, being bold and upfront reds with plenty of flavour.
This wine is named after Roxton, a pedigree bull from the Brampton estate, which signifies the bold and upfront style - this wine is no wallflower! The grapes were sourced from high quality vineyards in the Helderberg area. After hand-harvesting and extended post-fermentation maceration to enhance the extraction of ripe, round tannins and deep colour, the wine is aged in 30% new French oak barrels for 14 - 16 months.
