Spier Cabernet Sauvignon 1999

Intense red colour and interesting multi-dimensional nose, where you will find fresh wild fruit. Full-bodied, with sweet and mature tannins. Good balance between alcohol and acidity with a strong, elegant finish. A perfect combination with cheese, as well as white and red meat dishes.
