Rich crimson in colour, this 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is an elegant medium-bodied wine which displays aromas of red currant, dried herbs and has some dusty, earthy undertones. The juicy red berry fruits follow through to the palate, which is supple and savoury with fine, powdery tannins. In 2008 we enjoyed fantastic depth of colour and intensity of flavour in our fruit, hence this wineâ s tremendous concentration. It will cellar for up to 7 years from vintage.
