“My passion for the Cape Winelands and its diversity found its expression in this classic Cabernet Sauvignon. In our constant pursuit for vineyards that give our family of wines their distinction and character, this wine met all the hallmarks I believe should be reflected in a Cape Cabernet Sauvignon. It is my pleasure to share this wine from our family collection with you.”
