PRICE FOR 6 BOTTLES

Carl Everson was the visionary 4th generation farmer at Opstal Estate. This wine is a tribute to his perseverance and hard work, earthed in our family’s land, during tough times in the industry post-war. Made from the best and carefully selected grapes on the farm this is our flagship red wine. In keeping with the philosophy of this range, we stepped back and let the grapes do the talking rather than fiddling to much in the cellar.

NOTES FROM THE WINEMAKER
Made from the best and carefully selected grapes on the farm, this is our flagship red wine. The 2020 vintage shows lovely black current, cherry, mulberry and pepper spice aromas on the nose with a nuttiness from the barrel maturation. The structure of this wine is medium bodied, with the Carignan and Cinsault providing an elegantly fresh and zippy palate, finishing dry

OAK PHILOSOPHY
The Cabernet Sauvignon component of this blend was in new oak, but the other varieties were in 3 rd, 4 th and even older fill barrels – all 300L French oak and for a period of 18 months. After bottling the wine spends another 8 months in the bottle before being released onto the market. In the Carl Everson Range we aim for complexity, balances and elegance. So, we don’t want to overpower the wine drinker with too much oak extraction and rather let the fruit be captain of the ship through plenty drinkability.
