ak Cabernet Sauvignon 1999
“What a lucky year for us! Our beautiful daughter Pier was born, Jacus Marais joined our team and of course, we invented the first SA Cellar-door wine club, the Nitida Premium Wine Club.”
“Yummy” with a first impression of intense “ripe plum” fruit combining with fleeting “nutty-herb”At intervals “stylish gaminess” and “dark chocolate and Belgian toffee in a bottle” hit your mouth. Lots of velvety, fruit tannins for a stunning finish.
An injection of a variety of French coopers has greatly complemented this wine. We braved the nerve-racking wait until mid April for full grape ripeness which has given us big fruit tannins and flavours. 100% open fermenter, cap punched through by hand every 4 hours. Extended skin masceration before fermentation at 30 degrees enhances. Cultivar flavours and colour extraction.
