The Matys Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot is a popular, modern-style and easy drinking wine that shows aromas of red ripe berries and hints of dark chocolate. It has a medium-bodied feel on the palate with subtle tannins. Spicy undertones complete this well balanced, well defined, fun and fruity wine.

An ideal wine for all barbeque dishes as well as roast pork and spicy chicken kebabs. This wine will partner any occasion.
