The Cape Winds Cabernet Sauvignon is an oak matured, fruit driven red wine. This vintage is beautifully aromatic and perfectly balanced with soft plum and ripe summer berry and black currant flavours followed by a round finish.
The Cape Winds Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot is a full bodies wine. Beautiful aromas of Cigar box, dark chocolate, eucalyptus and mint, together with the smoothness of the Merlot ensure a complex full-bodied red wine.
Enjoy this wine with rich red meat dishes such as beef bourguignon and oxtail. Savour with fruit-cake or other desserts containing hints of cinnamon or cloves. Amazing partner to a fillet mignon with a rich balsamic glaze.
This Cabernet Sauvignon is designated a Pays d’Oc Protected Geographical Indication wine. Covering 4 French «departments», it boasts a wide variety of terroirs, each one with different soils and climates, and which, when blended together, create wines with typical characters. There are many contrasts between the harshness of the mountain foothills and the mildness of the Mediterranean coast.
From an assembly of traditional winemaking and thermo-winemaking. The winemaking starts by a period of extraction based on offloading and then occurs the fermentation. The second half of the fermentation is mainly done by pumping. The termo-vinification allows the optimization of the colour’s extraction and to obtain really fruited wine. Wines are vinified in a liquid or semi-liquide phase between 24°C and 26°C.
Rich and ruby packed with plenty of dark forest berry aromas that slide to a smooth entry with rampant ripe blackcurrant and pastille flavours, beautifully integrated with savoury oak spice and a plush succulent finish.
