Aristea Cabernet Sauvignon, Stellenbosch Magnums 2017

Red | South Africa | Stellenbosch | 14% | Full-bodied red

Matt Krone’s philosophy is of the less-is-more school, and nowhere is this more apparent than in his handling of his red wines. Early morning picking was followed by 18 hours in a cool room to enhance the vibrant fruit flavours, after which the grapes were crushed and left to soak at a low temperature for twelve hours before fermentation began; after six days of relatively cool temperature ferment, the wines were transferred to one third new, two thirds one and two year old barrels to undergo malolactic fermentation.

The result is big blackcurrant fruit, very primary, with deliciously smooth, integrated tannins behind, and a lovely chocolatey end note. So youthful yet totally drinkable too.
