Classic Cabernet aromas of black current, blueberry, chocolate and toast are prominent on the nose. Fine, well-structured tannins and good acidity balance the bold black fruit with hints of raspberry on the palate. Savoury flavours of cigar box and tobacco add complexity to this medium bodied Cabernet, which has a sweet, fruity finish.
Bold black and red fruit on the nose with cassis, juicy plum, purple figs and bramble. Soft ripe fruity flavours follow on the palate with attractive vanilla, liquorice, and velvety tannins. Medium bodied with a gentle savoury finish, makes this an anytime wine.
Expressive dark fruits on the nose - blackberry, black cherry and mocha with sweet baking spices. Juicy fruit follows on the palate with sweet black fruit and bright cherry flavours supported by fresh acidity and notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Well integrated oak and smooth tannins make this medium bodied Shiraz infinitely drinkable.
Bold, bright and fruity, this is definitely a riper style of Sauvignon blanc. Bright passion fruit, cape gooseberry, lime cordial and peach jump out of the glass. Zesty, granny-smith apple acidity accompanies the mouthfilling fruit on the palate. Light bodied, lively and balanced.
I have a great respect for Napa Cabernet Sauvignon as I appreciate the art of their balance in such powerful wine. This wine was made to see how close we can come to a Napa style Cabernet Sauvignon in Stellenbosch.
