Kanonkop Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
A complex and serious wine showing layered aromas of cedar wood, blackcurrants, blue berries, tea leaves and graphite on the nose. Subtle oak spice and savoury notes add further complexity. The palate is rich and full bodied, with pin-point balance between fruit and oak. The elegant and refined tannin structure is supported by intense flavours of cassis, cured meat and tomato stew. A lingering finish completes a true Cape classic wine! The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon has a perfumed bouquet of black currant, blueberry and touches of cedar/pine cones; the oak is nicely integrated here. The medium-bodied palate features sappy red fruit and an undercurrent of salinity that imparts a subtle marine influence toward the composed finish. Classy.
