Maimai Cabernet Sauvignon

Vintage: 2010

Grown on a small, meticulously managed block in the hills of Havelock North the old
vines were left to crop at a naturally low level thus ensuring perfect balance between
flavour, ripeness and phenolic components in the wine.
The warm 2010 summer aided in the fruit composition and gave us the opportunity to
make a single varietal wine, something that we can not always achieve.

Intense and vibrant red with garnet hues.

The wine has lifted aromas of black cherries and plums.

Silky smooth texture with vibrant flavours of red currants and plums. Secondary notes
of cedar, chocolate and cigar box give the complexity and a full mouth feel.

The 2010 vintage allowed for full and even ripening of the fruit giving us the opportunity
to make the wine in a natural and hands off manner. This retain the naturalness of the
characters and lets the wine express the terrior of the site.
Harvested in late April and pressed off after a period of extraction the wine was aged
and matured in French oak for 20 months before bottling in early 2012.

Enjoy with . . . .
Red meats and strong cheeses.
