Uitkyk Carlonet Case - 6 x 750ml

The farm Uitkyk, situated on the south-western slopes of the Simonsberg, was established in 1712. The estate's neoclassical manor house, completed in 1788, is thought to be the work of the French architect Louis Michel Thibault, who was active at the cape at the end of the 18th century. Vineyard location Uitkyk estate is 600ha in size with 140ha under vines. An interesting variety of cultivars are planted on the estate: Chardonnay, Semillon, Chenin Blanc, Viognier, Pinot Grigio, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Pinotage, Sangiovese, Mourvedre, Petit Verdot and Pinot Noir. During the 2009 vintage 781 tonnes were harvested at the cellar. The winemaking viticultural aspects most of the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were sourced from the famous "Bordeaux" block planted in 1989 to 1993, but grapes from a block of bush vines planted in 1999 were also used to add a new dimension of fruitiness to this famous wine. The vineyards are planted in deep, red soil originating from decomposed granite and facing north-west at 250 - 370 meters above sea level. Supplementary irrigation was necessary in february 2011, but the bush vines are grown under dry land conditions, thus giving small bunches and berries with thick skins. 

The overall yield was 5 tons per hector. Uitkyk estate is 600 ha big with 150 ha under vines. Other cultivars planted on the estate are: Chardonnay, Semillon, Chenin Blanc, Viognier, Pinot Grigio, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Pinotage, Sangiovese, Mourvedre, Petit Verdot and Pinot Noir. During the 2011 vintage 730 tonnes were harvested at the cellar. Cellar techniques: The Cabernet grapes were hand picked at 25.5 - 26.5 degrees celsius mid to end March 2011. Separate fermentations were completed in a combination of rotation tanks and open fermenters at 26- 28 degrees celsius until dry. Pure yeast cultures were used and the fermentations finished in 5-8 days. Thereafter most of the wine stayed on the skins for a further 2 weeks, before pressing took place. The wine was then racked to tanks for malolactic fermentation with the free-run wine being kept separate from the press wine. Thereafter the wine was racked and matured for 17-18 months in 300 liter barrels. During this period the wine was racked once together with all the lees. French (76%), american (8%) and Hungarian wood (16%) were used in a combination of new (64%) and third fill (36%) barrels. 6% Shiraz was added to the blend to add complexity. Bottling took place in November 2012. 

Wine Maker's Comments:
- Colour: Dark ruby with pink hues and a bright rim
- Bouquet: A combination of dried fruit, especially prunes, berries and spices all in one mouthful. Fine undertones of vanilla Oak finishes off this basketful of aromas 
- Taste: The nose carries through onto the palate with berries, dried fruit, spices and chocolate all contributing to a well-rounded feel with the backbone of ripe tannins. A long finish with a hint of spiciness at the end
- Maturation potential: The wine is already accessible, but will definitely gain from further cellaring
