Beyerskloof Synergy Cape Blend 2009

Dark purple like core with a vibrant ruby red rim. An abundance of sweet black currant with hits of red cherry. Classic cedar and forest floor with a timid leathery undertone. Opulent black fruit with a finely balanced, juicy and savoury mid palate. Firm yet elegant ripe tannins. A fresh acidity provide a lingering aftertaste. This wine has all the attributes of a classic Cape Blend.
