De Wetshof Naissance Cabernet Sauvignon wine captures the essence of one of the worlds great classical red cultivars to create a wine of elegance, power and individuality. The soil, sun and aspect of De Wetshof allows the wine to express freshness, power, elegance and a delicate plushness. Here intense dark berries, bittersweet chocolate and pencil shavings abound, while palate weight, depth of presence and a lasting finish enhance the experience of drinking a red wine of substance and pedigree.
After de-stemming, the grapes are cooled down and moved to tank for a few days’ cold-soaking on the skins before fermentation starts. The wine ferments dry on the skins and after racking and pressing the young wines are moved into French oak barrels specially selected by Monsieur Christian Radoux. De Wetshof Naissance Cabernet Sauvignoncan spends up to 18 months in the barrels to develop a rich and intense flavour.
