Story: Grown in nearly every major wine producing country in the world, Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the world's most widely recognised variety.
Vintage: The 2019 growing season started with mild weather and below average rainfall. Some late spring rain provided a bit of relief from the dry conditions. A heatwave in January was luckily too early in the ripening cycle to cause any damage to the fruit. This was followed by a very mild and dry finish to the vintage, allowing good hang time and flavour development to the smaller than average crop.
Nose: The nose offers a vibrant, big bouquet of ripe red berries, complemented by elegant oak.
Palate: The palate is deliciously rich and ripe with tasty berry fruit flavours and a lovely texture, followed by a tight, grippy finish.
Food Pairings: For a perfect match, pair this wine with a slow roasted Moroccan spiced lamb shoulder served with a sundried tomato and chickpea salad.
Cellaring: Drink now to 2027
