Tasting Note

Cabernet Sauvignon is like that
confident, robust teenager who
knows everything! Success comes
easily – no matter the environment.
They cruise into a comfy corporate
job and float to the top. Very few
light up the world, because very few
eschew their comfort zone. Some,
through circumstance, are forced
to… and occasionally a star is born.
The truth is that growing Cabernet in
the cool-climate, deep south of South
Africa is tough. The devigorating soil,
the cold, ocean-borne, battering
winds, the myriad slopes… all force
this easy-go-lucky grape from its
comfort zone. And a star is born.

Bruce Jack Heritage Collection

This Cab mostly hails from a single vineyard (92%), planted in 1997 on Francis Pratt’s farm alongside Elim at the cool, windswept southern tip of Africa. The vineyard was grubbed up in 2013 only a few weeks after it offered up its final harvest. Why you might ask?…

Unfortunately, as with many vineyards it was uncommercial. It was tortured by the birds, the hail, the frost, the incessant, blustery winds… and perhaps like the vinous equivalent of Van Gough, it was capable of magic as a result.
