Reyneke Vinehugger Cabernet Merlot Blend 2015
Region: Stellenbosch
Winery: Reyneke
Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon Blend
Vintage: 2015
Label   Fact Sheet

Description: The grapes for the 2015 Vinehugger Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot were sourced from Organic vineyards in the Stellenbosch region with different soil profiles predominantly decomposed granitic soils. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes were all hand harvested into lug boxes in the early morning between February and March 2015. The grapes were sorted, destemmed and crushed and wild, spontaneous fermentation took place in old oak casks. The wine was made using a method of submerging the cap, or the grape skins, which allows the wine to extract tannin from the skins rather than the oak making this wine more approachable in its youth
