The Black Oystercatcher is a family-run wine farm at the cool tip of Africa. Our unique location and marginal soils help create our penetrating fruit flavours in our wines.
The Rudera Cabernet Sauvignon blanc 2012 is a dry;fruity 100% Cabernet Sauvignon made in a strictly classical approach. The grapes were all hand picked and sorted in the vineyard, followed by berry selection in the cellar before crush. The vineyard is situated at the foothills of the Simonsberg mountain west of Stellenbosch and is just a few kilometers from the Atlantic Ocean. The temperatures during the ripening season in January and February average at 23.7 and 21.8 respectively, and with the sandstone-derived gravel soils, conditions are ideal for premium quality Cabernet.
