Joostenberg Estate “Philip Albert” Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
Dominant cedar wood aromas and blackberry undertones immediately identify this wine as a Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate is in the classic mode i.e. medium bodied with a long finish, marked by elegant, dry tannins.
The first Myburgh to farm at Joostenberg was Philipus Albertus Myburgh and 5-generations later his off-spring are still tilling the soil and acting as custodians of this little patch of earth.
This is the first release of Cabernet Sauvignon under this label and the grapes were sourced exclusively from Joostenberg vineyards. It’s a classically styled Cabernet Sauvignon leaning towards the old world.
