Stark-Conde Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 4 ½ Stars 2020 Platter’s South African Wine Guide


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

4 ½ Stars 2020 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
17 (94 pts) follows 16 (93 pts) form in subtle influence of dabs of petit verdot, petite sirah, malbec & cab franc. Deeply alluring fruitcake spice yet light, elegant & pliant. Natural ferment with maturation in third new oak, 20 months.
91 pts Wine Spectator 4/30/20
Elegant, with dark plum and currant notes that are lively and balanced due to a bright beam of acidity and soft tannins, lending support and depth. Not a big Cabernet, but one that would pair well with a variety of foods. Best from 2022 through 2033.



Winemaker Notes

This is our “estate” blend of Cabernet Sauvignon: it is from our 4 Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards, blended with Petit Verdot (8%), Petite Sirah (4%), Malbec (2%) and Cabernet Franc (1%). Matured in French oak for 20 months — 30% new oak and the balance in 2nd and 3rd-fill. Textbook Stellenbosch Cabernet: plush black fruits and fine, elegant tannins. An excellent vintage that will age 10 years+ if properly cellared.
