South Africa Longridge Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 750ml
• Introduction 簡介
The name of this range comes from the early days of settlement in the Cape. The VOC (Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie) prohibited farmers from trading with anyone other than the ‘Compagnie’, but this lead to big unhappiness. Therefore, when the ‘vrijburgers’ and local tribesmen wanted to do business, they had to go to a secluded area in the mountain-range to trade without interference. This corner was where Stellenbosch Mountain and Helderberg ‘join’ and so it became known as ‘Konkelberg’.
• Terroir 風土
Rooted in the oldest viticulture soil in the world, it is made up of decomposed granite on the lower slopes of the Helderberg Mountain. This vineyard enjoys the refreshingly cool breezes from False Bay (Atlantic Ocean) during the day and cool night air flowing down the mountain, resulting in even ripening of the berries and good, natural acidity. The macro climate is maritime, with cold wet winters and sunny warm summers.
它植根於世界上最古老的葡萄栽培土壤，由海德堡山下坡的腐爛花崗岩組成。 這個葡萄園在白天享受來自福爾斯灣（大西洋）的清爽涼爽的微風和從山上流下的涼爽的夜間空氣，從而使漿果均勻成熟，並具有良好的天然酸度。 擁有近海洋性的宏觀氣候，冬季寒冷潮濕，夏季陽光明媚。
Longridge Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 釀造過程：
The vineyards are meticulously cared for by hand. The crop is reduced to ensure maximum quality. Organic and biodynamic practices are employed by not using any pesticides, herbicides or chemical sprays.100% estate grown.
Biodynamic practices were also followed in the vineyard. In the winery, the grapes were sorted twice – firstly as whole bunches and then as berries to ensure that only the best grapes reached the fermentation tank. Extraction happens by way of remontage, carefully monitored to prevent over-extraction. This wine was matured in French oak barrels during primary and secondary fermentation for 22-24 months and is ready for drinking now, but will continue to develop over the next eight years. We recommend decanting the wine prior to service.Africa’s only indigenous red wine cultivar from parent grapes Pinot Noir and Hermitage (Cinsault). Stylistically we focus on the fruit and characteristics of the Pinot Noir. An elegant, well rounded wine with soft juicy tannins, the nose offers sweet spices, cassis and ripe berries, sugared orange peel, rooibos and a smoky charcuterie character, which follows through onto the palate, with a savoury lingering aftertaste.
葡萄園也遵循生物動力實踐。在釀酒廠，葡萄被分選兩次——首先是整串葡萄，然後是漿果，以確保只有最好的葡萄才能進入發酵罐。提取通過重新蒙太奇進行，仔細監控以防止過度提取。這款酒在法國橡木桶中經過一次和二次發酵 22-24 個月成熟，現在可以飲用，但將在未來八年內繼續發展。我們建議在服務之前將葡萄酒倒出。非洲唯一的本土紅葡萄酒品種，來自母葡萄黑比諾和埃米塔日（神索）。在風格上，我們專注於黑比諾的果味和特點。一款優雅、圓潤的葡萄酒，單寧柔和多汁，散發出甜美的香料、黑醋栗和成熟漿果、加糖的橙皮、南非國寶茶和煙熏熟食的味道，回味悠長。
