Rhebokskloof Cellar Selection Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz 2015

Typical Cabernet blackcurrant and ‘fynbos’ on the nose, complimented by the spicy aromas of Shiraz. Easy tannins and spicy fruit ensures a drinking delight, asking for “more please”.

Drinking delight either on its own or accompanied by a tender piece of sirloin.
