Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet SauvignonRed 2016

The King of Red Wines, consistently a show stopper and delivers even better with some aging to it. Vineyards are planted on deep red Hutton and Avalon soils.

TASTING NOTES

Delightfully perfumed with spicy vanilla oak and an abundance of red fruit and cherry aromas. Soft silky tannins on the palate with flavours of lead pencil, cigar box and sandalwood. A lingering finish persists. 

 

FOOD MATCHING

Excellent with grilled ribeye steak. A classic match for richer savoury dishes, springbok fillet or black mushroom stroganoff.
