Jacobsdal Cabernet Sauvignon Case - 6 x 750ml

Jacobsdal is a boutique wine estate situated between Stellenbosch and Kuilsriver on the slopes of the hills overlooking false Bay, a mere 10km away. The Dumas family has been making wine on the estate for four generations. The farm is steeped in tradition and the present winemaker, Cornelius, who is assisted in the cellar by his son, Hannes, continue to make wines in the same way since it's inception in the 1920's. Some 92 ha of the farm's 260 ha are planted to vines. The unrealised vineyards are extensively pruned to limit the yield grown under dry-land conditions. At Jacobsdal something of the world of yesteryear lives on. Here dedication to soil and vine is a way of life while wine is made with minimal intervention in the traditional French way. These wines withstand the test of time that is why handmade is well made. Vineyards: The grapes were sourced from dryland bush vines, aged between 11 and 35 years, situated 140m above sea level. Grown in sandy, loamy soils with a yellow clay substructure, ensuring good drainage and water retention, the vineyards grow on south-westerly facing slopes. 

Wine making: The grapes were harvested by hand at 24 degrees celsius balling at the end of February, with an average yield of four tons-ha. Fermentation is allowed to develop spontaneously from the natural yeast cells on the grape skins in open concrete tanks. This method followed by the Dumas family allows for subtler but more complex flavours where tannins are less evident. The cap was regularly punched down by hand for maximum extraction of colour, flavour and tannins. Skin contact lasted four to five days. Only the free-run juice was used with no pressed wine added. After spontaneous malolactic fermentation, the wine was racked from the lees and matured in small French Oak barrels for 12 to 18 months.
