Muratie Ansela van de Caab

R500.00

Dark, intense and brooding – all watchwords for the exciting wine to come. The nose promises much – cedar wood, cigar box, tiny blackcurrants and a distinctive herbaceous edge courtesy of the Cabernet Franc – and the palate more than delivers on that promise with rich, savoury flavours of black olive tapenade, cassis, some perfumed sandalwood and a long finish which develops from fruit to savoury, and ends with an enticing combination of the two. This wine epitomises balance, with the elegant tannins, fresh acidity and masterly oak treatment all playing their part. A wine to savour and sip with the very finest culinary offerings

This debate is centred largely around the desire to protect a century’s old wine experience that is a magnet for wine lovers around the world.
