Story: Open canopies and low yields at the Kuitpo vineyard ensure that our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are matured to optimum ripeness.
Vintage: Spring and summer were cooler than normal with above average rainfall and the 2017 vintage happened much later than usual. The combination of those factors and dry weather for most of the harvest resulted in higher yields and excellent quality across regions.
Nose: This wine offers restrained cool climate Cabernet aromas of cassis, herbs and blackberries.
Palate: The palate is structured and elegant with blackberries, cassis and chocolate complemented by fine tannins and a touch of mint on the long finish.
Food Pairings: Try the K1 Cabernet Sauvignon with a herb crusted lamb rack.
Oak Maturation: 30% new French oak for 18 months.
Cellaring: Drink now or to 2029
