Rudera Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Rudera’s philosophy for winemaking is to let the vineyard show through the wine and this philosophy comes though in every sip of this great Cabernet . . . Sauvignon. The Rudera Cabernet drinks exceptionally well now and will reward after another 3 years in the bottle.
A vision of inky-purple and brick-red hues, bears promise to intense flavours of black currents, bluegum, ripe cherries, cigar box and pencil shavings on the nose that follows through and explodes on the palate with a voluptuous mouthfeel and powerful, gripping finish.
Rudera Cabernet Sauvignon pairs well with a variety of mushroom and meat dishes such as mushroom risotto or barbequed lamb. The hint of fynbos on the
nose and palate opens up pairing with vegetarian dishes such as vegetable lasagne and oven roasted vegetables.

The tannins on the Cabernet are big and ripe, best served at room temperature or slightly under. This wine has a velvet texture and the total alcohol . . . is 14.5% and the residual sugar 1.8 grams per litre.

The perfect consumer will be someone who loves a rather big style, high quality, traditional wine. The Rudera Cabernet is made in the ancient . . . tradition of winemaking , as naturally as possible without additives or employing synthetic interventions of any kind

The Rudera Cabernet Sauvignon blanc is a very elegant style due to the fact that the wine underwent malolactic fermentation in the barrel. The wine was racked using only gravitation and matured in French Oak barriques for a total of 22 months.
