Description

Tasting Notes

“This wine has a great structure and is an honest and identifiable Simonsberg Cabernet Sauvignon. Notes of dark fruit, plum, cherry and cigar box are evident on the intriguing nose. Ripe blackberry and dark cherry flavours 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”.  Johnnie Calitz (winemaker)

Food Pairing

This wine pairs well with grilled meats – beef fillet, lamb neck or ostrich.
