Decomposed granite topsoil with clay subsoil. The Meerlust Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 was vinified from selected fruit from low-yielding mature vineyards. The vines are densely planted on gravelly, low vigour Vilafontes and Dundee soil which has approximately 15 % clay to ensure water availability to the vines roots right through the growing season.The hand picked fruit was vinified in the traditional manner with partial un-inoculated fermentation and regular remontage. Only the free-run wine was used and aged for 20 months in tight grained French Nevers oak barrels. 75% of the barrels were brand new with 25% second fill casks.
