Vineyards

Constantia, Cape Town

Winemaking and Maturation

28% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc, 21% Merlot, 14% Malbec and 12% Petit Verdot matured for 18 months in 80% new and 20% second-fill French oak (225L) barrels. Post maturation the wine only received a light filtration before making its way into bottle on 25 November 2015. This wine will continue to develop admirably during bottle ageing, under the correct cellaring conditions for 10 years from vintage.

Tasting Notes

The 2014 FIVE confidently opens with concentrated aromas of ripe blackcurrant, juicy plums and wet earth. This forefront bouquet makes a lasting first impression, but being given time to breathe, unwinds into multitudinous layers. Graphite leaps from the glass with every swirl, filling the immediate atmosphere with nostalgic aromas of pencil shavings containing traces of lead. Thereafter, as the whirling liquid comes to rest, the bouquet closes with hints of violet, oreganum and wild fynbos florae.
