2017 West Cape Howe Cabernet Sauvignon
Our Cape to Cape -white label- wines are approachable, fruit driven wines made for enjoying now and over the short term. Most of the fruit is from our vineyards in Mt Barker, with a smaller portion from the ever reliable Frankland River region. COLOUR: A deep, dark crimsony red.
AROMA: Beautifully scented with loads of fragrant, spicy ripe berry fruits and a hint of sweet capsicum.
PALATE: Lovely sweet plum fruit flavours along with some delicious mulberry fruit characters. The wine is well structured with these generous fruit flavours complemented by the chewy, lightly drying tannins picked up from the skin contact during fermentation.
CELLARING: Has the depth of fruit to be enjoyed now but also has the structure to improve with further bottle age. Delicious now with everything from a simple cheese & crackers to a full carnivorous meal! Fruit Source: Great Southern (Mt Barker & Frankland) 95% Cabernet Sauvignon; 5% Merlot
