    Brand: Haut Espoir

    Haut Espoir Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

    HK$285
    This Cabernet Sauvignon boasts big meaty tannins and complexity on the pallet. The fresh cherry and sweet tobacco flavours are in balance and the wine has a long finish.

    Technical Analysis: Alc. 14.5% | pH 3.62 | Total acid 6.4 g/l | Residual Sugar 1.4 g/l

    Production: 4 666 bottles

    Vinification: The two batches were split up: 65% of grapes were fermented in open fermenters and inoculated with yeast. 35% were fermented in Stainless steel tanks and underwent wild fermentation. Post fermentation maceration lasted a month, before transferring to 75% New French oak barrels. After 7 months of maturation, the two blocks were blended and transferred back to barrel for another 15 months of maturation.

    Harvesting: The grapes were hand harvested in the coolness of early morning in two batches, to ensure optimal physiological ripeness. First picked on 2nd April, second picking on 15th April.

    Source: This 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon was produced from fully ripened grapes harvested from Haut Espoir in the Franschhoek region.

    Weather: Prior to ripening, the conditions were cool and dry, which meant a slower ripening for the red varietals.

    Food Accompaniment: Red meat especially lamb, game birds, rich meaty casseroles, chargrilled meat or game.

    Mullineux White Blend 2014

    Chenin Blanc based white blends from the Swartland are fast becoming an outstanding category, due in no small part to the excellence of winemakers such as the Mullineux family and their consistently outperforming wines. The Chenin Blanc content has been increased slightly again this year to 80% with Clairette offering 13% to the blend and the balance from Viognier, which gives it a gorgeous floral lift.
