Noble Hill Cabernet Sauvignon
The Simonsberg appellation has been called Cabernet Country, and with good reason! Cabernet has been grown there for over 300 years and produces classic, elegant examples of the varietal. Notes of cassis, tobacco leaf, and Moroccan mint.
Noble Hill Estate Cabernet Sauvignon grapes rarely lack colour or structure, making a light touch the cornerstone of our cellar practices. Noble Hill aims for a light extraction by gently transferring the juice over the skins twice daily during the fermentation. This wine is matured in 225l French oak barrels for 18 months.
South Africa may be defined as a New World wine producer but this can be a bit of a misnomer: our vineyards are planted in some of the world’s oldest soils. The decomposed granite soils that define our vineyards give this wine an earthy, cool and distinctively Old World character. We taste black fruit, cedar, and a hint of spice. Noble Hill Cabernet Sauvignon should age elegantly and show increased refinement through at least 2025.
Made on the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountains in South Africa.
