Platter Awards 4*
This Cabernet Sauvignon from Kaapzicht Wine Estate holds a deep ruby hue with a dense centre. Brimming with blackcurrant, fennel and fynbos notes, the wine boasts firm tannins and masterful integration of oak which balances the fruit, resulting in great complexity and depth. The wine is still quite young, but good structure and fruit promise more if it is allowed to spend a few years (ideally 6 to 8) in the cellar.
