Peacock, 'Wild Ferment', Cabernet Sauvignon, 2019, Stellenbosch, South Africa


A much more approachable Cabernet - lovely dark fruit, cassis, and leafy aromas with a nice bright taste. Well made and high quality Cabernet for under £9.

The grapes for Peacock Wild Ferment Cabernet Sauvignon are sourced from the coolest, most coastal areas of Stellenbosch: The Helderberg and Schapenberg. This is the home to many of South Africa's greatest Cabernet Sauvignons. In this cooler and more windswept area the variety produces lower yields and has a longer ripening time, ensuring balanced flavours and elegant tannins in the finished wine. Grapes are hand-picked, de-stemmed, sorted and fermented spontaneously with wild yeast in open top wooden fermenters.
