In honour of generations past and present, this Cabernet Sauvignon
is strong and structured like the pillars themselves, with an enticing bouquet of blackcurrant, wood shavings and lavender scents. Backsberg celebrates five generations of winemaking heritage. Each of the four pillars represents a generation of the Back family who helped build Backsberg into what it is today.
Cool-crushed and cold-soaked for a few days prior to fermentation. During fermentation, aerated pump-overs four times a day further aid in the gentle extraction of colour and tannin. Post fermentation skin contact and 18 months of oak aging produce a wine that is bold in structure with sufficient weight on the mid-palate.
A classic Cab that will complement all meals when a fine red wine is called for, or to end off an evening with rich cheeses.
Backsberg is a family-run business. Right from the beginning, the name Backsberg had always been closely related with the family Back that has succeeded in creating fantastic wines over several generations. The special knowledge of the region and its features and capacities is not only passed on, but continuously improved and refined. Even though every generation wants to bring the vineyard Backsberg forward, owner, winemaker and the rest of the team agree that the taste of the wine lovers is the most important aspect at the end of the day.
