Sebeka Cabernet Pinotage 2008 Wine Review
Gorgeous smoky flavours with coffee, blackberry and dark plum. Full-bodied, smooth and lip-smacking delicious! Cabernet Pinotage food pairings: rich foods, including fire-grilled meats and vegetables, pasta.

|Production / Vinification Methods: |
The grapes used to create the 2008 Sebeka Cabernet-Pinotage were grown in a number of South Africa’s finest vineyard districts located across the Western Cape. The cooler districts benefit from the fog created by the cold ocean currents coming north from Antarctica, as well as the vigorous “Cape Doctor” cross winds coming from the Atlantic and Indian oceans. The warmer districts take advantage of the bright South Africa sunshine and produce grapes with deep, rich colors and ripe fruit flavors. By marrying grapes from such diverse areas, Andries was able to produce a finished wine of great character and complexity.
The grapes were picked at optimum ripeness, then destemmed & crushed into stainless steel for one
week fermentation on skins @ 22-25ºC, then pressed & inoculated with MLF bacteria. Clarified after
100 % completion of MLF. The final blend is made up of carefully selected tanks.
Varietal Content: 65% Cabernet, 35% Pinotage
Titratability Acidicity: 0.57g/100ml
Alcohol Level: 13.9%
Residual Sugar: 0.4g/100ml
Our 2008 Sebeka Cabernet Pinotage brings together the dark fresh blackberry flavors of smooth and creamy Cabernet intensified by Pinotage’s intense red berry notes and complex structure.
Enjoy now or cellar for another 2 - 3 years.
