Waverley Hills No Added Sulphites Cabernet Sauvignon
One of our most popular 'no added sulphur' red wines. Carefully hand picked and destemmed, the absence of sulphur raises the fruity, red berry and flower aromas, keeps the colour intensity and enriches and balances the palate. Best drunk young and fresh.
89 Points - Tom Cannavan's Wine-Pages.com, 'What a beautiful organic wine, with no added sulphur, from the always interesting Tulbagh region of South Africa. It has aromatic lift and an essential, ash and mineral brightness, and lovely red berry fruit. Bold and juicy, it has elegance to the tannins and the cherry-fresh acidity. Delightful.'

In 2000, Waverley Hills decided to enter the organic wine market. Since then a total of 30ha of vineyards and olive groves have been planted and cultivated organically. All grapes and olives used for Waverley Hills' products are cultivated on the estate, situated between Tulbagh and Ceres 150 km from Cape Town, on well drained soils that are irrigated by pure mountain spring water. As you enter Waverley Hills you will drive past rolling organic vineyards and olive groves - their white ducks, that control the snails in the vineyards, might also greet you too. The area is renowned for its diverse fynbos (indigenous flora) which helps give the wines their unique herbaceous character.
