Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

R197.00

Tasting Notes

This Cabernet Sauvignon is a vibrant and full bodied wine. The nose displays aromatic plum and dense cassis with a hint of mint. Classic oak characteristics like chocolate, cedar and roasted coffee beans compliment the black berry fruit flavors. The tannins are refined, but present.

 

Harvest and Winemaking Information

The grapes are sourced from eight different sights on the farm and carefully vinified separately. Fermentation lasts up to 14 days and then a further skin maceration period commences before the must is pressed and moved to oak. 50% New French Oak and the rest second fill French Oak was used to mature this Cabernet Sauvignon for 15-18 months.

*A minimum order of 6 bottles (one case) is required.

This wine calls for some serious food. Roasted lamb dishes or a fabulous Beef Bourguignon will pair nicely with this classic Cabernet.
