Protea Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

Protea Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

Instant charm of fruitcake and Christmas pudding; black fruits, spice galore and light brush of herbs on the nose. Gently rounded and supple upon entry, further adds to its attraction. The spicy plum, black berries and cherry of the nose are echoed on the palate too. Delicious and succulent but structured too with a good backbone. Silky smooth in texture, it has a gentle satiny grip with a long, rewarding tail.

in the vineyard : A better crop with lager yields than 2019 vintage attributed  to favourable winter conditions. Soils were supplemented well by better winter rainfalls. With this, post-harvest irrigation was possible and vines were healthier. Moderate summer temperatures during ripening contributed to good flavour
retention in the grapes. The 2020 vintage promises full wines with concentrated flavour profiles.
