Food Suggestions
Can't complement anything better than a fillet of beef or rack of lamb - this is a wine not for the faint hearted and not for faint food.
In The Vineyard
The vines used for this wine are a combination of trellised Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc vines from both the Helderberg, Bottelary and Devon Valley areas.
About The Harvest
Grapes are picked between 24 - 25° Balling.
In The Cellar
After harvesting, the grapes were crushed and allowed to cold macerate for anything between 2 - 4 days. The juices are inoculated with French yeast strains and allowed to ferment on the skins for at least 14 - 20 days with periods of hotter fermentation (29°C) and periods of colder fermentation (20°C).

This creates not only a heavy extraction of fruit and tannin, but also an array of flavours through different fermentation temperatures. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc and Merlot partially finish malolactic fermentation in barrels and are allowed to age separately on the fermentation lees for 18 months after which it is blended and allowed another 6 months blended barrel maturation time. 
Additional Information
The Stellenrust Timeless resembles the pride of the estate with extra effort being put in to ensure that each bottle lives up to its name for being timeless.
