Strydom Rex 2018


Kongelig Cabernet, balance mellem frugt og træ

Kirsebær, cassis, strejf af tobak

Til bøfgryde, grillet kød og brisket


Strydom Rex 2018

This is a full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with flavours of red cherries, cassis and hints of tobacco. There is great balance between the wood and fruit.

Truly the king of varieties!


The grapes were hand-picked during the morning. In the cellar, after sorting, and no crushing the whole berries were conveyed into the open fermentation tank. Laffort FX15 yeast was used for innoculation. Pump-overs started once the cap lifted every 4 hours five times a day with a gentle punch down thereafter. Total maceration was for 16 days. Only 650L/Ton were pressed out after which the wines did the malo-lactic fermentation in French oak barrels – 30% new. This wine spent 18 months in barrel and was bottled in December 2018.

Soil and Terroir:

This wine is a combination of two sites. Besides for some elevation differences the soils of both sights are 8-10% clay with a de-composed granite and gravel combination.
