Peter Falke PF Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, unpretentious & beautiful

Cabernet Sauvignon is hailed around the world as “The King of the Reds” and today, with the long-awaited release of our 2015 vintage, we at Peter Falke Wines crown the new successor in our own Cabernet Sauvignon royal family.

Peter Falke Wines is proudly renowned for producing handcrafted, elegant wines that reflect the true characteristics of our terroir, and our PF Cabernet Sauvignon’s awards history is a testament to this reputation.

“The PF Cabernet Sauvignon is our most awarded wine, consistently achieving local and international recognition vintage after vintage,” says Peter Falke winemaker, Werner Schrenk. “Stellenbosch is the home of Cabernet in South Africa and it’s extremely rewarding to work with the varietal at our estate. Cabernet is always itself. It’s unpretentious, easy to understand and beautiful.”

Only the best grapes were selected for the 2015 vintage, of which just 7,000 bottles were produced. Hand selection and sorting occurs in the vineyard, with a further selection process in the cellar to ensure exceptional quality. After destemming and crushing, fermentation resulted in velvety smooth tannins. Ageing took place in a combination of first, second and third fill French Oak barrels.

The 2015 vintage is full bodied with all of the allure of classic Cabernet Sauvignon character - intense dark fruit flavours, subtle violets and a hint of liquorice and earthiness. Deft use of oak in the cellar results in a lovely, lingering finish. The ideal autumnal serving suggestions include roasted beef sirloin with a bone marrow sauce, wild mushrooms and red wine shallots; Portuguese churrascaria lamb skewers; or salted caramel chocolate fudge cake.
