    Eikendal Classique is the absolute top wine of the Eikendal Vineyards - the proud flagship of the long tradition at the Stellenbosch Winery. Classique is a cuvée based on Cabernet Sauvignon. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot add wonderful complexity to the wine and bring absolute perfection to this masterful cuvée. Intense fragrant aromas of blue and black fruits, paired with delicate spices and typical earthy and mineral character enchant the nose. On the palate it is gripping with an extremely fine and silky tannin structure and stunning freshness.

    Classique embodies the essence of Eikendal - a classic, yet subtle red wine with endurance and staying power. Years of hard work, dedication and absolute passion for quality form this first-class dream wine. Open this wine on a truly perfect occasion and decant it - it will simply blow you away!

    Treatment in the cellar

    Each grape variety was harvested and vinified separately. Before the fermentation process was started, the grapes underwent a long and above all slow cold maceration. The fermentation process took place in small stainless steel tanks. Once fermentation was complete, the different grape varieties were matured separately for 12 months in French 300-litre oak barrels, then blended with great care and placed in French barriques for a further 6 months for ageing. After bottling, the wine matured for a further 12 months in the bottle before being released for consumption.
