Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2011 Jackpot Cabernet Sauvignon has a gorgeous dark red brick hue. The nose is vibrant and showcases classic and complex aromas of red cassis, light soya sauce, leather and tabacco. Purity of Cabernet Sauvignon character is evident in the savory pallet with intense notes of cassis, black sage and cedar. The 2011 Jackpot Cabernet Sauvignon is tight yet concentrated with fresh acidity and generous fine grained, ripe tannins. This well-structured wine is built for ageing. Decanting is recommended and enjoying it would food is prescribed!
Vineyard Notes
100% Cabernet Sauvignon from 26-year-old U2 block vines in Nk’mip Vineyard. This is a legendary block from which a number of outstanding wines have been made. These mature vines are planted on a south facing slope that captures sun and heat and can produced ripe and concentrated fruit even in cooler years like 2011.

Winemaker Notes
The grapes were picked at optimum maturity and destemmed gently into small fermenters. Hand plunging took place 1-4 times a day during the on-skin fermentation. Fermentation temperatures were fairly warm and ranged from 28 to 30 degrees celcius. The wine was pressed near sugar dryness and transferred to French oak – 25% of which was new – for 16 months. A further six months of aging took place in stainless steel barrels for better integration. This wine was neither fined nor filtered.
