Slowine Cabernet-Sauvignon

Slowine Cabernet-Sauvignon

Ref: A135216

With this Cabernet, great care was taken not to over extract the grapes, concentrating on ripe fruit and tannins. The wine has been aged in 3 or 4 year-old barrels where the malolactic fermentation took place as well. Egg whites were used for clarification and the wine has only been very lightly filtered. There is an intense, black fruit nose with cedar wood and tobacco overtones and a soft, voluptuous and spicy fruit on the palate. (2016 - 13.5%)

Drinks very well with roasted prime rib of beef, leg of lamb, casseroled pheasant or rabbit, venison loin and hard English cheeses.

Founded by Carlo Petrini in Italy in 1986, Slow Food is an international association that promotes food and wine culture, but also defends food and agricultural biodiversity worldwide. It opposes the standardisation of taste, defends the need for consumer information, protects cultural identities tied to food and gastronomic traditions, safeguards foods and cultivation and processing techniques inherited from tradition and defends domestic and wild animal and vegetable species.

You will find a picture of a Parrot Beaked Tortoise on the wine's label. This rare tortoise is also known as the "padloper" and is mainly found in renosterveld patches in the Kogelberg. The males develop bright red / orange noses during the breeding season which makes them look like "boozy" old men! The tortoise emblem, of course, further accentuates the whole concept of 'slowness'!
