Complex and intriguing Cabernet Sauvignon from Franschhoek. Natural fermentation on large wooden tanks. The wine aged for 24 months in 80% new French oak and was bottled unfiltered. The wine presents a complex ever-yielding nose with hints of vanilla
with dark red berries and black currant, pencil shavings and cigar box, with great follow
through to the palate. There is an upfront, full and generous mouthfeel with an elegant, yet firm tannin structure, ending in a rich powerful and lingering finish. Cellaring potential of 10+ years.
Serve with the best of red meat, beef, venison and lamb.
