Bartinney Private Cellar is set on the dramatic slopes of the Botmaskop alongside the Helshoogte Pass overlooking the picturesque Banghoek Valley in Stellenbosch. Established in 1912, Bartinney has been in the Jordaan family since 1953. Now Rose and Michael Jordaan tend to the twenty-eight hectare farm, with a vision to create excellent wines and reawaken the charm of the historic land. Creating excellence in wine has not been a singular pursuit. Their belief is that every aspect must work in harmony: agriculture with nature, people with animals, sustainability with excellence.
The winged figure depicted on each Bartinney bottle is called ‘Elevage’ and symbolises the French art of the selective maturing and ascension of a wine to its ultimate heights, unfurling its most noble traits. This idea is embodied in the team work, small-lot artisanal craft and gentle methods, relied upon at Bartinney to create excellence year-on-year.
The grapes for this wine are sourced form eight different blocks on the farm, which were handpicked and carefully vinified separately. The grapes were fermented for seven days, and then the crushed grapes and skins are left to macerate for at least a month. The must is then pressed and moved to 30% new French oak and 70% second fill French oak for eighteen months.
Bartinney Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Our Cabernet Sauvignon is truly a classic in style, with a rich aroma, up-front cassis, tobacco and pencil lead on the nose. Delicious rich plumb and chocolate, are structured by firm, yet restrained tannins, which make way for an elegant finish.
