Fleur Du Cap Cabernet Sauvignon 1996

The wine has a well developed nose with delicate fruit, nuts and spice. On the palate it displays powerful flavours of cherries, plums and tobacco. The medium to full mouthfeel is rounded by soft, matured tannins to create a long finish. It lends prestige to any beef, venison and game dish, as well as noble cheeses.
