After skipping the 2019 vintage, the fruit for the 2020 CBSV was hand selected at the Organic Brash Higgins estate Omensetter Vineyard. The vines were planted in 1997 into a unique, shallow sandstone shift in the predominately clay over limestone vineyard. 2020 was a very warm year, plagued by fires in SA, as well as the beginning of the pandemic. A touch longer elevage than usual, 20 mos, allowed the tannins to soften and the wine is ultra juicy as a a result. 210 cases

Tasting Notes

Perfumed nose; caraway seeds, floral, sweet mint, blueberries and cassis, with spicy notes of Earl Grey tea, and Dutch liquorice. On the palate the wine is smooth and rich with the sweet earthiness of roasted root vegetables, the acidity of rhubarb and the dark lusciousness of black currants. Layered and complex, the 2020 finishes with lovely sweet notes as well as that typical cabernet tannin keeping the wine taut.
