Glen Carlou Cabernet Sauvignon 2018


Cabernet Sauvignon may be king but he is not the perfect monarch. Bordeaux’s rise to the most classic and renowned wine region was certainly not built on Cabernet alone and for many years even included Shiraz.

Like many monarchs, Cabernet is thick-skinned, providing all the character of colour, tannin and aroma. Cabernet is also versatile, colonising many of the world’s vineyards capable of producing light and elegant through to dark, rich and powerful wines.

Tasting Notes

This wine has a great structure well supported by the oak. Ripe blackberry and cherry aromas follow through onto the smooth palate framing the mint and dark chocolate flavours. I particularly enjoy working with Cabernet Sauvignon and this is a reflection of a reputable and identifiable Simonsberg Cabernet.

Food Pairing & Recipes

Lamb and heirloom carrots or soy braised pork neck or Moroccan lamb shoulder.

Winemaker’s Note

This wine has a great strcuture and is an honest and identifiable Simonsberg Carbernet Sauvignon. Notes of dark fruit, plum, cherry and cigar box are evident on the intriguing nose. Ripe Blackberry and dark cherry flavors on the palate support the mint and dark chocolate aftertaste. The tannins, fruit and oak on this noble example are perfectly integrated, resulting in a balanced and full-bodied wine, with a seamless finish.
