"A classic Simonsberg Cabernet, exuding a sense of coolness, despite the warm vintage conditions. A perfumed nose filled with notes of blackcurrants, fennel, cigar box, tea leaf and “fynbos” shrub. The palate is delicate and fresh, with an austere old-world charm about it. Grainy tannins compliment the earthy profile, with subtle hints of liquorice on the lengthy finish."
