Kaapzicht Steytler Pentagon 2012

A muscular Bordeaux style blend that exudes power and concentration, tied up in a structure of fine grained tannin and bright acidity that not only promise extensive evolution, but also entices with every visit to the glass. Brooding dark fruit tightly packed in an intricate frame are delivered with great purity and finesse.

A definite food wine. Enjoy it with any of the following, but do not forget to include your friends: Rack of lamb with rosemary roast potatoes or rolled loin of Kudu.
