Stellenbosch Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

This is a modern styled Cabernet Sauvignon that shows elegance and finesse. The nose shows a vibrant profusion of blackcurrant and cherry. The palate shows floral notes reminiscent of jasmine shrubs. The finish is complex with rich floral flavours and soft yet lingering tannins that speak of longevity.

This wine will pair well with most red meats or poultry and is an ideal match for spicy curries. Serve at a cool room temperature.
Suitable for vegetarians but not for vegans.
