Springfield Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Brother and sister team Abrie and Jeanette Bruwer are the complete opposite of your typical university trained have-cultured-yeast-will-travel flying winemakers. Their wines are all about their rocky, unforgiving terroir in Robertson and stand head and shoulders above most producers for sheer quality. Their obsession is reflected in Abrie's philosophy; "I only want to sell wine I am proud of and I will only get a limited number of chances to do that in my life."

Springfield Estate is a winery located in Robertson Valley in the Western Cape of South Africa that has been in the Bruwer family (descendants of Bruères of the Loire, France) for four generations. The grapes for these handcrafted wines are grown in lime-rich soils with rocky, clay and sandy elements. The nearby Breede River acts as a climate moderator, cooling the vineyards in the heat of summer to balance the fruit. Their motto: “from the grape to the bottle with care and passion.” The estate specializes in Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Bordeaux blends and Pinot Noir.  Read less

Breathing in this wine is like breathing in the forest. Bark, rock, sand, fresh mushrooms and lots of crisp, fresh air. On the palate it is spicy (pepper and herbs) and intensely fruity, almost syrupy. It has berry-like fruit, mostly boysenberry and cranberry. Very rich. Full-bodied and full-flavored. Lots of vanilla. Good oak integration and tannins after 2 years in French oak and a further 3 in bottle prior to release. Somewhat bitter on the finish. Otherwise outstanding.

Methode Ancienne Cabernet Sauvignon 2002 - Springfield: Methode Ancienne Cabernet Sauvignon 2002 - Rotwein von SpringfieldDie Rebstöcke aus denen der Methode Ancienne Cabernet Sauvignon gewonnen wurde, wurden 1979 gepflanzt und haben noch niemals enttäuscht. Dieser Cabernet mit seinem vielschichtigen Bukett und seinen nuancenreichen Frucht- und Gewürznoten erscheint körperreich, mild, weich, langlebig, rund und schmeichelhaft. Nachdem Sie ihn eine Stunde vor dem Trinken belüftet haben, schmeckt er noch besser.Weingut: SpringfieldLand: SüdafrikaRegion: RobertsonRebsorte: 100% Cabernet SauvignonInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,25 g/lRestsüße: 1,25 g/lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18 °CFassreife: in Barriques gereift (24 Monate)Lagerfähigkeit: 10 - 15 Jahre ab JahrgangAuszeichnungen des Springfield Methode Ancienne Cabernet Sauvignon 2002:4 Platter Stars Rotwein > Südafrika > Robertson
