Tall Horse Cabernet Sauvignon is a deliciously rich ruby-colored red with a layered bouquet of ripe forest berries and spice. It has a smooth entry with lovely ripe berry fruit and vanilla oak notes ending in a smooth finish. This wine’s grapes are left to ferment for seven days on their skins at 28 Degrees Celsius with three separate aerations per day. After the pressing process has been completed, the young wine goes through a process of malolactic fermentation on French oak staves, where they are left for an additional 3 months. Intrinsic cultivar traits are conserved by using a very light filtration process before the wine is bottled.
Tall Horse wines are for those who like to enjoy a good glass of quality vino, without all the nose-in-the-air-ness that seems to follow other wines around. We’re all for wines that are easier to drink than they are to pronounce. Tall Horse wines come from South Africa. The grapes grow in vineyards with near-perfect conditions in the Western Cape wine lands. From the slopes of the Cape Mountains caressed by cooling sea breezes, the vines drink in the winter rainfall and bask in the long summer sunshine hours allowing fantastic ripe expression of variety and land.
The Tall Horse Cabernet Sauvignon is rich and ruby packed with plenty of dark forest berry aromas that slide to a smooth entry with rampant ripe blackcurrant and pastille flavours, beautifully integrated with savoury oak spice and a plush succulent finish.
