Five Generations Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Five Generations Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

A wine of stature, the Cabernet Sauvignon shows a beautiful combination of blackcurrant and plums with subtle hints of cedar wood and clove spice. A wine rich in flavour with a ripe tannin structure that has velvet finish on palate.

Whatever we suggest: choose the best and most pure on the shelves of your local grocer. Steak – with a little fat. Juicy lamb – not too rich. Home cooked berry sauce with a little cream. Ostrich steaks and beef liver or beef dominated stews.

Cheese: The matured ones and not the bulk kind: beaufort, gouda, cheddar, double Gloucester, older Amsterdam and stilton.
