Avontuur Cabernet Sauvignon 2003

Avontuur Cabernet Sauvignon 2003

This is a classically elegant dry red wine with an attractive cherry-red colour. Medium-bodied with opulent cigar box and liquorice aromas. Well-integrated ripe tannins and a long, balanced finish. Mineral and herbaceous flavours add interest to a well-made wine.

Fillet steak with a creamy sauce, ostrich kebabs, hearty Mediterranean dishes and smoked meats.
