Erika Obermeyer Cabernet Sauvignon StellenboschErika Obermeyer
A serious wine with all the hallmarks of an extraordinary Cabernet. The nose features alluring nuances of concentrated red and black fruit, tilled earth and cedar wood combined with oak spice, while the palate shows intensity and depth underscored by chalky ripe tannins and a savoury finish. Rich and full bodied, yet expertly balanced with superb purity and focus.
Residual Sugar: 3.1 g/L
"I strive to capture a true sense of place, whilst authentically expressing the inherent character of the grapes. This hand-crafted range delivers terroir specific wines with captivating flavours, intricacy, superb structure, and outstanding cellaring potential. Erika O is a pint-sized boutique winery, crafting only small batches and offering a very individual product, which mirrors the immense passion, pride and focus.
The wines are refreshing, elegant, beautifully balanced and well suited to food. The intention is to create wines which authentically express South Africa’s unique vineyard sites and exceptional diversity. Consider the Erika O wines as the ultimate ode to the miracle and wonder which is the magnificent South African Winelands.
I have always maintained the following ingredients are essential in the art of crafting a fine wine: true terroir, balance, honesty, and a light touch. They tell a rich and deeply fascinating story of a time, a place and a maker. Please enjoy the wines as much as I relish the extraordinary “soul journey” they have taken me on." - Erika Obermeyer
