Stark-Condé Three Pines Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
(R2,699.99 for 6 x 750ml)
The 2016 vintage was a dry growing season resulting in wines that are intensely aromatic with velvety tannins. With this wine we are always looking for a fine balance between Power and Elegance. When young, this wine shows the violet/cassis/black cherry notes typical of this vineyard, coupled with the fine elegant tannins for which the Jonkershoek Valley is known. This is the second year that we used Cabernet Franc in the blend, replacing the Merlot. The use of Cabernet Franc emphasizes the more perfumed notes in this wine.

From our well-known Three Pines vineyard. The grapes were hand-harvested and hand-sorted and fermented in open tanks with hand-punchdowns throughout. Matured for 20 months in small French oak, 70% new. A small amount of Petit Verdot (6%), Cabernet Franc (4%) and Malbec (2%) was blended in to enhance the mouthfeel and perfume. An excellent vintage of Cabernet that will reward careful cellaring.
This wine has been a 2x Six Nations Wine Competition trophy winner; a 4x Platter 5-star wine; and a 2x Old Mutual Trophy winner.
