This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was crafted from a selection of prime Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards from our Robertson Estate including a site located on the South-East facing slope of the Rooiberg Mountain that incorporates the game reserve on the Graham Beck property. The vines are planted on red Karoo soil which is also home to the delicate, yet tough fynbos that the game feed on next to the vineyard. Once in the cellar, the fruit isÂ destalked, gently crushed and fermented with 4 daily pump-overs to ensure maximum extraction.
Once dry, the juice is pressed and transferred into 2nd fill French and American Oak for malolactic fermentation in barrel. The wine is then kept for a further 9 months of maturation inÂ barrelÂ to gain complexity and a full mouthfeel. Great complexity of black berry fruit, dark chocolate and plums on the nose. This wine has a rich, juicy entry supported by firm tannins. An elegant creamy palate leads to a long lingering finish.R85.00

“If I may be so bold,” is a phrase that doesnâ€™t seem to fit in the FAT bastard lexicon. To understand what we mean, take a healthy gulp of the FAT bastard Cabernet Sauvignon.
It is made from carefully selected grapes with the aim of producing a wine with pure fruit character. All fruit is hand harvested at optimum ripeness and gently pressed to retain aroma and flavour. The wine is aged in small oak barrels, which adds greater weight and complexity.
Its unapologetically intense aromas of blackcurrant and brambly wild fruit lead promisingly to rich flavours of ripe cassis and chocolate with a hint of earthiness.
Balanced tannins and acidity ensure a well-defined structure and elegant finish. Fat, unadulterated joy in a bottle!R92.00
