Springfield Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Méthode Ancienne 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Planted in 1979, these old cabernet vines, established on a southerly facing rock-infested outcrop, consistently produce fine wine. Brother and sister team Abrie and Jeanette Bruwer are the complete opposite of your typical university trained winemakers. Their wines are all about their rocky, unforgiving terroir in Robertson and stand head and shoulders above most producers for sheer quality. This is a smooth, velvety wine with softer tannins and varietal characteristics. It offers lovely flavours of cherries and herbs. On the palate it is intensely fruity, and spicy with hints of pepper and herbs. It is very rich with overtones of berry-like fruit such as cranberry. Full-bodied and full-flavored, this wine is unfiltered and unfined and may deposit a sediment, possibly requiring decanting.

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
