Simonsig Labyrinth Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

The deep garnet red colour reveals delicate notes of violets, cherries, black berries and cedar. A masculine body reflects pencil shavings and fynbos, whilst the velvety tannins bind these flavours into a supple, lingering mouthfeel.

Rare Roast Beef, Leg of Lamb, grilled veal, braised ribs, flavourful and hearty pastas.

History
Simonsig has been producing Cabernet Sauvignon since 1976 and achieved early success when the 1977 vintage won the General Smuts trophy after being judged as the Champion Wine of South Africa. Simonsig replanted and expanded its planting of Cabernet Sauvignon over the last decade and it now has mature vineyards planted with the best clones available in South Africa. These shy bearing vineyards are planted on deep red weathered granite and shale soils with high moisture holding capacity. This minimises the need for irrigation and gives great concentration of flavour. Our terroir in Stellenbosch has proved over many years to be one of the best areas in South Africa to grow the finest quality red wines.

in the cellar : 

17 Months oaking. 86% French Oak 14% American Oak. 2% 2nd fill, 18% 3rd fill, 80% older.
