Cape View Dry Red 2001

A dry red wine, medium body, ruby red in colour. Intense aromas of raspberry and blueberry. The palate of this unwooded blend is smooth and uncomplicated but there is enough body for the wine to be enjoyed not only on its own but also with casual food.

Serve slightly chilled in summer or with pool side fare such as a cold meat and salad buffet.
