An incredibly delicious and robust South African red wine for the price! Made from the classic Cabernet Sauvignon grape, this wine offers lots of gorgeous toasty, smoky oak, coffee and black fruit on the nose and palate. On the palate it actually lifts up with berry ripe flavours. Perfect for hamburgers.

This warm, rich ruby red wine shows great complexity on the nose. There is a mixture of dark and red fruit, mocha and mint aromas with well balanced wood. Sweet, spicy undertones give this wine great depth.
