Cape Point Vineyards Isliedh 2006

Isliedh is created in a tight mineral style for enjoyment with great food which will reward for many years to come. The wine displays a complex array of limes, minerality, tropical fruit and spice which will be accompanied by secondary flavours over time. The '06 can be best enjoyed from early 2008 over the next 5 years and possibly even 10.
