Alto Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 Magnum

Characteristics:
Deep ruby red color. Primary flavours of herbs with ripe red cherries, tobacco, plums, green peppers and tea leaves. Secondary flavours of vanilla after wood ageing and tertiary flavours of moist woodland, bark and mushrooms. Vintage 2009 remains a concentrated wine with long finish. Decant in advance, or let this wine mature: it can be cellared for more than 10 years.

Food pairing:
Baked or grilled red meat or ground game, with flavourful sauces

About the winery:
Alto has a famous and unique terroir, high on the slopes of the Helderberg, with the influence of the cool sea breeze coming from the west. In this environment, the grapes can ripen slowly, which gives beautiful aromas and nicely developed tastes. Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz feel unbelievably well in this region. The "Alto Rouge" has been an institutional wine since nearly five decades.
