Simonsig Cabernet Sauvignon 2000

Attractive deep red colour with youthful rim indicative of a great red wine vintage. Ripe, mulberry and blackcurrant fruit with hints of cigar box aromas. Spicy French oak supports the fruit on the palate and adds a delicious long aftertaste. The soft tannins provide enough structure to this Cabernet to allow further improvement over the next few years.

ageing : Soft and perfectly drinkable now but should benefit from further ageing over the next 4 to 5 years.

in the vineyard : The hot dry summer resulted in very ripe grapes with tremendous colour and huge structure. The high sugar levels made rich red wines with lots of body and loads of ripe fruit flavours. A big wine that should last for many years.
