This Steenberg Catharina 2009 is beautiful South African red. It is a blend of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 28% Cabernet Franc.
It has a deep ruby colour. Pronounced aromas on the nose. Intense black fruit aromas with a hint of cedar and mint.
Catharina is a full bodied wine with high acidity and medium to high tannins. It has a nice earthy and smoky tone. New French oak barrels contributed a smooth oaky flavour. Its flavour will come out even more once decanted.
A nicely structured wine with interesting complexity. It offers a medium to long finish.
Many people believe that wines need to “air/breathe” before serving. It’s true to a certain degree. However, by opening a bottle some time before serving does absolutely no good at all. It is because too little of the wine is in contact with the air for it to have any effect. It is important to use a proper decanter for decanting.
so what wines need decanting?
Wines with a heavy deposit need to be decanted. This deposit is quite natural and is formed during the aging process of many good red wines.
Also, some young wines benefit from the aeration that occurs by being decanted, although this can be done as easily by swirling the wine in a wineglass.
How should decanting be done?
1. First remove the bottle horizontally from its rack and place in a decanting basket if available. Alternatively, hold carefully, making sure the deposit is not agitated.
2. Very gently remove the top of the capsule and clean the shoulder and neck of the bottle. Very gently remove the cork.
3. Remove the bottle from the basket, being careful not to disturb the deposit. Holding the bottle in front of a light, pour the wine carefully into the decanter until the deposit can be see near the neck. At this point stop pouring.
Enjoy your wine and have a great Monday!
