Tasting Notes

Having worked at the world famous Chateau Margaux in his early winemaking career, David fully understands the nature of making a good Bordeaux style blend. In the Cab et al, he has changed the style from a wine that needs many years to mature to a softer, plush wine that is ready to drink at a far younger age.

Blend Information

52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot

Food Suggestions

Ideal to serve with robust dishes such as lamb shank or steak hollandaise. It will also pair well with vegetarian dishes such as Biryani and vegetable curry. Perfectly suited to enjoying by a warm fireplace or watching the sun go down.

Additional Information

This wine is a blend of Stellenbosch and Paarl grapes made up from juicy Cabernet Sauvignon with a splash of rich Merlot, fruity Cabernet Franc and graphite Petit Verdot to back it up and broaden the flavor spectrum.
