Platter's Review: 4 *
ageing : 7 - 20 years
Spicy aromas of liquorice and vanilla overlay rich blackcurrant fruit. Careful oaking provides the necessary structure for the ripe, full and fruit driven mid-palate. Complex and long lasting, this wine has depth and power, and will reward further bottle ageing.Powerful and long lasting during the aftertaste, the Backsberg Cabernet Sauvignon tastes delicious with all kinds of meat dishes. A classic Cab that will complement all meals when a fine red wine is called for; or to end off an evening with rich cheeses.
Backsberg is a family-run business. Right from the beginning, the name Backsberg had always been closely related with the family Back that has succeeded in creating fantastic wines over several generations. The special knowledge of the region and its features and capacities is not only passed on, but continuously improved and refined. Even though every generation wants to bring the vineyard Backsberg forward, owner, winemaker and the rest of the team agree that the taste of the wine lovers is the most important aspect at the end of the day.
