Delheim Cabernet Sauvignon 2001

Veritas 2003 - Bronze
Rich, full-bodied and intense red wine, with a mouth-watering, velvet-like flavour of blackberries and blackcurrant. It has enticing baked apple and lingering cinnamon-like nuances. The careful maturation in French oak barrels, resulted in a firm, dry tannin structure. This will ensure, that the wine will age up to 5 years from vintage. Enjoy with roast dishes such as duck, lamb and beef.
