Winemaker's Notes

Cherry-red hue. A typical young Cabernet bouquet-dominated by ripe blackcurrant plum and cherry fruit and topped with vanilla spice. Charming palate delights the senses with layers of succulent richness and velvety smoothness. Light oaking adds extra complexity. Can be enjoyed now, will hold for another 4 -5 years.

SERVING SUGGESTION: Ideal with ostrich steak, grilled rosemary-flavoured lamb, oxtail and steak.

Alcohol: 13.0 %alc/vol
